When doing a trip like this there seem to be defining moments when you realize what you have accomplished. I was struck by this feeling again while standing on top of Sugar Loaf Mountain over looking Rio De Janeiro.

I have seen many pictures of this famous landmark and realized "Hey you drove all the way here on a motorcycle" how cool is that!
It was apparent that Rio like any large city struggles with pollution from smog. There was no wind the day I visited and the smog just hung in the air like a blanket of poison over the city.

Sugar Loaf is also considered a wildlife park consisting of many different animals.
I still get a kick out of how these guys can blend into their environment.
Never got the name but these guys are as cute as hell
