WHERE TO GO SIGHTSEEING: Rio de Janeiro : Rio is full of things to see. You can scarcely miss the magnificent Copacabana Beach section with its serpentine mosaic walk famed the world over. Neither can’you miss Sugar Loaf Mountain or Corcovado (Hunchback Mountain) which tower over the city. Sugar Loaf is a huge granite cone at the entrance of the bay. Take the cable car to Sugar Loaf and a funicular to Corcovado. The summit of Corcovado is crowned by the famed statue of Christ the Redeemer. The views from these two spots are fabulous. Visit the Gavea district by car; it affords some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere. This is where the race track is, too. Among the many churches, be sure to see the Church of Nossa Senhora da Gloria do Outeiro with its Bible scenes in blue tile. The Sao Bento Monastery is interesting, but only men are allowed in the cloisters. The Guanabara Palace, the residence of the President (now the municipality), is at Rua Pinheiro Machado, was once the residence of Princess Izabel. The Sao Joaquim Palace, Praca da Gloria, is the official residence of the Archbishop. The largest park in Rio is the Quinta da Boa Vista, containing the National Museum, once the residence of two emperors. It has zoological gardens, a small tropical-fish aquarium. Botanical Gardens are situated near Lake Rodrigo de Freitas and the Jockey Club. Here is a great avenue of palms 2,200 feet long. Tijuca Forest is fine for a day’s excursion.
