Brazil Photo

Below is a picture of the beautiful city of Rio De Janeiro at night. The mountain in the top center of the picture is Sugar Loaf (Pão de Açúcar in Portuguese). Other famous tourist attractions include Copacabana beach, Maracana soccer stadium, and the large Christ The Redeemer statue, which was recently named one of the Seven Wonders Of The World. Rio was Brazil's capital city until 1960. Although Rio is a beautiful city and a world famous tourist spot, it is also a very violent and dangerous city. Much of the violence occurs in the "favelas" (slums), and there are many favelas in and around the city.
