rain ceasing

Thursday 14th August 2014:

Today the day began for us as I opened our wooden shutters to find the rain pouring down onto the little street below. The tail end of the hurricane up north I was guessing. Disappointing to say the least. IMG_5347

We spent most of the day avoiding the downpours where possible… but as the day went by the clouds lifted and we were able to visit Sugar Loaf mountain and see the panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro in all their glory. The clouds just added atmosphere!

We were so thankful that the rain ceased just long enough for us to catch these amazing glimpses of the stunning city we are in and behold Christ the Redeemer from our this beauty spot.
