It is just a short flight to Cristo, but with no or doubtful landing options and after no sleep for quite a while, it was pucker factor 10 to go across the huge "Cidade Maravilhosa" of Rio de Janeiro! I enjoyed every thermal in this soft ocean air
Fabio went along with me and buzzed Cristo, while I just relaxed and enjoyed the szenery, happy about this chance of a lifetime!
Guga took me back home to the hotel, and we had to avoid a huge traffic jam. Thanks to an accident with a stolen car on one of the main roads out of the city, it was absolutely chaotic. Guga knew the beautiful back road through the Tijuca national park, and we stopped at "Ponto Chinese", a look out that I had already seen from the air today.
