Uma recepção calorosa from Rio de Janeiro My first Sunday morning in Rio gave me the quintessential Brazilian experience: chilling on a packed Copacabana beach listening to traditional samba music performed by a group of local friends sitting around a breakfast table. It didn't seem like these people were an organised band, and they weren't doing it to make money from tips. I just got the feeling that they were doing it for the love of samba. How can you not have a smile on your face when you find yourself experiencing this beauty on the world's most iconic beach only a few minutes' walk from where you stay? What a city! The night before, I also got to hear some Brazilian samba. I teamed up with a friend of mine, Shannon from Los Angeles, and asked some locals where we could find a unique samba experience. SATURDAY NIGHT SAMBA We were given insiders information on where to find a tiny samba bar known only to locals. When we arrived, we couldn't believe just how authentic this place was. It was a small bar – kinda like a bodega. The band was not on a stage; they were just sitting around a table with their instruments and drinks. The place was packed, and we were standing around their table in a circle. It was a truly unique experience. After the band put down their instruments in favour of their drinks, we stepped outside onto the street and walked a bit until we came across another very local place where they had a karaoke night. It didn't have any windows, so people walking by could hear the not-so-great 'singers' attempting their versions of famous songs. Shannon's face lit up, and with a big smile, she said, "Hey Palle, let's go in and get a drink". The thing is, Shannon "Sangin' Diva" Pearson is a professional singer. She began her professional career at the age of 15, doing studio work around Los Angeles. Over the years, she's had the privilege of sharing the stage as a backing singer for artists like Natalie Cole, George Duke, Stanley Clark, Al Jarreau, Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan, Evelyn Champagne King, Sean "P-diddy" Combs, Kelis, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry, and many others. She's also appeared on TV shows like Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel, America's Got Talent, and even How I Met Your Mother. As a solo artist, she's performed all over the world as Sangindiva Shannon. And now this singing diva was about to have her Brazilian debut in a not-so-fancy little karaoke bar in Rio de Janeiro. The people in there had no idea what was about to happen. Shannon was almost jumping in her seat and smiled like a kid in a candy store when she was flipping through the song folder to pick a song. She then went up to the lady controlling the show and pointed at a song. When it was her turn, we all sensed that this was a professional from the second she was handed the microphone. She connected instantly with the sleepy people in the room with her presence. She then belted out a loud "Hello from Los Angeles California!". And then the music started: Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance with Somebody. Unlike other karaoke singers, she was not looking at the screen for the lyrics. She was looking at the audience, dancing and spinning around. The people on the street stopped and looked in awe of what was going on. It was like they were looking and thinking, "Wait a minute, didn't Whitney pass away a long time ago?". We ended up staying there for hours, and Shannon kept going back on stage again and again… Check out Shannon's outstanding performance below. https://youtu.be/nZnWVsxriJE ESCADARIA SELARÓN OR SELARÓN STEPS The following day, I met up with Shannon on Copacabana beach, and we were both still high on the musical experience from the night before. We strolled along the beachside, taking in the sights and sounds of this splendid place. We then slowly headed to the next beach over, Ipanema. We found ourselves at the 'hippy market', a lovely little flea market kitted out with artsy items such as musical instruments, brightly coloured shirts, hats, and curiosities. We then headed up to Escadaria Selarón, also known as the Selarón Steps – a world-famous steps attraction in Rio de Janeiro and the work of Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón who claimed it as his "tribute to the Brazilian people". In 1990, Selarón began renovating the steps that ran along the front of his house. At first, neighbours mocked him for his choice of colours as he covered the steps in fragments of blue, green and yellow tiles – the colours of the Brazilian flag. It started as a side-project to his main passion, painting, but it soon became an obsession. He was constantly running out of money for the project, so he sold paintings to fund his work. It was long and exhausting work, but he continued on and eventually covered the entire set of steps in tiles, ceramics and mirrors. There are 215 steps, measuring 125 metres long, covered in more than 2000 tiles collected from over 60 countries around the world. It is considered an iconic tourist attraction of Rio de Janeiro, with travellers from across the globe visiting it every day. The steps have been featured in many famous magazines, newspapers, travel shows, documentaries, commercials, and music videos. National Geographic Channel, American Express, Coca-Cola, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, Time and Playboy are just some of the media outlets that have featured the iconic steps. The steps have also been featured in many music videos, such as Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams' Beautiful. Snoop and Pharrell are not here today, but halfway up the steps, we met a young local couple with hip-hop names: Biggie and Dou. They were relaxing at a pop-up bar that was selling the iconic Brazilian drink, Caipirinha. "There are so many amazing things to experience when living in Rio. Us locals are very warm and inviting. The stories are true: we listen to samba and dance every day of our lives. Plus, we give the best warm hugs." I sampled a Brazilian hug from Dou, and they weren't wrong. When I asked about the crime aspect of the city, they said that it is like any city in the world: as locals, there are certain places to avoid at night. Using common sense, they said, is key. Shannon and I ended up having quite a few Caipirinhas. It was a fun weekend with a friend I met on Nomad Cruise 7: a two-week "floating conference at sea" from Spain to Brazil. NOMAD CRUISE I hopped on a cruise ship in Spain with 500 other digital nomads and aspiring entrepreneurs from 42 countries for a two-week networking conference across the Atlantic. I met up with old friends from previous Nomad Cruises and made new friends along the way. On Nomad Cruise 7, I met Tarek Kholoussy, founder of Nomads Giving Back, who has a corporate background in Wall Street. He was working for Goldman Sachs when he decided to get out of the rat race and become a digital nomad. On the cruise, Tarek gave a talk about his journey and goals: one of which was to create a social enterprise. At the end of his talk, he publicly announced the launch of Nomads Giving Back. A few days after we set foot on land, I pulled Tarek aside in a café in Porto de Galinhas on the east coast of Brazil for a chat. This was before I arrived in Rio. DITCHING CORPORATE FOR SOCIAL Tarek told me he always had a passion for social causes thanks to his entrepreneurial heart, but his background had always been corporate. He joined Nomad Cruise to pitch his Nomads Giving Back concept to the nomad community: to inspire nomads and travellers to give back to the communities they visit. From his inspiring talk, he was met with overwhelming support from the nomad community, including the founder of Nomad Cruise, Johannes Voelkner, who suggested they collaborate. "Every digital nomad realises just how amazing our lives are having the opportunity to travel the world and experience things many will never the chance to. And it becomes more meaningful when we are able to engage with local communities we travel to uplift and help develop. The aim is to make this global world feel like a close-knit community helping each other along the way." BACK IN RIO WITH NOMADS GIVING BACK Jumping back to the present in Rio, I met up again with Tarek who found the first project here for Nomads Giving Back. They teamed up with the philanthropic organisation/school Solar Meninos de Luz situated in a favela close to Copacabana. Tarek tells me that the idea for this first NGB-program is inspired by the power of the Nomad Cruise conference, where attendees learn how to improve their digital marketing skills (among many other things). Tarek and the Nomads Giving Back team decided to use some of the funds collected at the fundraising dinner on the ship to create a digital skills program for students who would not otherwise have access to it. Many digital nomads earn their income from digital skills, and Tarek and the team sought to pay it forward by channelling donations to advance digital skill learning among disadvantaged youth here in Rio de Janeiro. Tarek and I caught up again to talk more about the new project. We both realised how fortunate we are to live a nomadic lifestyle and how much we have always wanted to give back to the communities we visit. "Digital nomads are mostly entrepreneurs working light without the backing of large corporations, so we don't have deep pockets. But there are so many other ways we can give back that doesn't require loads of money. Being a nomad is about freedom of choice, and part of that is defining what is important to you. For instance, in one night at the charity dinner on Nomad Cruise 7, we raised thousands of Euros." "Over and above, nomads are volunteering to help with their skills and talents: like the website and branding and business development. This shows the power of the nomad community and the power connecting through the same principles and values." Solar Meninos de Luz has spent nearly 40 years serving their local community. We were given a tour by Manu, a former student of the school and the perfect ambassador for the program. In fact, she came here when she was only three months old. "We have been here for 27 years doing a great job at educating the local community, with a holistic approach. We have 420 students, 115 volunteers, and 113 employees working in the school. We also provide over 1,200 meals every day as students arrive at 7am and leave at 6pm, so we provide 3 meals to each student every day. It is a lot of hard work but we love what we do here." Manu tells us that the school relies on public and private funds and donations to keep the facilities running. We walked around the school and met some of the students. We were then treated to a nativity themed music and dance performance by the students. It was really great and so lovely to see the kids singing and dancing. Then an adult choir came onto the stage and gave an incredible performance. MORE ABOUT SOLAR MENINOS DE LUZ In walking distance from Solar Meninos de Luz is the Copacabana Palace, one of Brazil's biggest and most luxurious hotels. It was the location of a fundraising event I was attending for the project. The luxury of the place is quite the contrast to the favela up the road. But that is both the charm and complexity of this historical city. Solar Meninos de Luz is a philanthropic organisation that promotes education, sports, arts and culture, basic healthcare, and professional training support. It was founded 34 years ago and have assisted over 5,000 locals. Famous Brazilian author Paolo Cohelo who wrote The Alchemist (1988) and The Pilgrimage (1987), among many others, is a major long-time sponsor of the school. He donated his villa, which is now part of the campus and serves as the library. After months of planning, the Digital Skills Program officially launched a few months later. Nomads Giving Back were able to teach things like content marketing, SEO, and Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn Marketing. The 14 students learned how to think strategically, generate their leads, promote their personal brand, effectively use each social media platform, and much more. Upon completion, they were able to implement what they learned to start and grow their own business or better prepare themselves for job opportunities. MIT MASTERCARD BLEV KOPIERET Out of nowhere, I received a call from my bank back in Denmark informing me of suspicious activity on my Mastercard. Apparently, some dick in the USA tried to draw $400 from my account. So, my Mastercard was blocked for security purposes, but thankfully your dapper Danish vagabond travels with a spare Visa, so my samba-licious adventures could continue. I later found out that my card was copied by someone moving close to me with some kind of electronic device that copied all the info of the wireless function on my card. Maybe it happened at the market on Sunday, where I was close to a lot of people. Since then, I've gotten a new wallet where my cards are protected in a metal case. SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN Sugarloaf Mountain is one of Rio's most iconic attractions. It is a beautiful peak that rises 396 meters high and presents a bird's eye view of Rio de Janeiro from the mouth of Guanabara Bay. The cable car trip up is a sensation, and the panoramic views from the peak are absolutely breath-taking. The original cable car was built in 1912 and then rebuilt in the '70s and again in 2008. I planned to meet up with a few digital nomads for a hike on one of the hills. Then, we planned to catch the cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain to enjoy the sunset. We made it to the summit just in time to watch the sunset. And boy, was the hike worth it. And as the sun was setting with a stunning view of Rio de Janeiro, it's also time to let the sun go down on this episode. My name is Palle Bo, and I gotta keep moving. See ya. FLASHBACK EPISODES WITH TAREK You should also go back to the archive and listen to the two episodes I recorded with Tarek to learn more about his story. It's genuinely fascinating.

Uma recepção calorosa de Rio de Janeiro Min første søndag morgen i Rio gav mig flere skønne brasilianske oplevelser: drak morgenkaffe på en café ud til en proppet Copacabana strand til lyden af skøn traditionel sambamusik spillet af en gruppe venner omkring et bord. Det virkede ikke som om disse mennesker var et orkester med en plan. Og heller ikke som om, at de gjorde det for at tjene penge. Jeg fik blot følelsen af, at de mødte op med deres instrumenter og spillede, fordi de ikke kunne lade være. Fordi de elsker musikken. Hvordan kan man undgå at blive glad i låget, når man kan opleve sådan noget et par gader fra, hvor man bor? Sikke en by. Aftenen før oplevede jeg også noget traditionel brasiliansk samba. Sammen med en af mine venner, Shannon fra Los Angeles, havde vi fundet et lille lokalt sted, hvor vi var de eneste turister. LØRDAG AFTENS SAMBA Vi havde fået hjælp fra nogle lokale til at finde denne lille bar – og da vi trådte indenfor, kunne vi næsten ikke tro, hvor autentisk dette sted var: En meget lille bar, nærmest en bodega. Orkesteret var ikke på en scene; de sad blot omkring et bord midt i lokalet og vi stod sammen med brasilianerne i en ring omkring dem, og bevægede os til de skønne rytmer. Det var virkelig en helt igennem fantastisk oplevelse. Da musikken stoppede, trådte vi ud på gaden og lidt længere nede fandt vi et andet sted, hvor de var i gang med karaoke. Dette sted havde ingen vinduer, så folk på gaden kunne høre de ikke-så-fantastiske sangere, der forsøgte at komme med deres udgaver af kendte sange. Shannons ansigt lyste op og sagde med et bredt smil: ”Hey Palle, la' os gå ind og få en drink”. Med til historien hører, at Shannon Sangin' Diva Pearson er professionel sanger til dagligt. Hun begyndte sin professionelle karriere allerede som 15-årig, hvor hun var studiesanger hjemme i Los Angeles. Gennem årene har hun sunget kor for så kendte kunstnere som Natalie Cole, George Duke, Stanley Clark, Al Jarreau, Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan, Evelyn Champagne King, Sean "P-diddy" Combs, Kelis, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry og mange andre. Hun har også optrådt på TV mange gange – Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel, America's Got Talent og den kendte sitcom, How I Met Your Mother. Som solokunstner kalder hun sig Sangindiva Shannon, og har optrådt rundt omkring i verden. Og nu var denne syngende diva på vej til at have sin debut i Rio de Janeiro – på en lille lurvet karaokebar. De andre gæster indenfor havde ingen idé om, hvad der ville ramme dem. Shannon var som et barn i en slikbutik og næsten hoppede i sædet, da hun bladrede gennem ringbindet med sange. Kort tid derefter fik hun mikrofonen i hånden. Vi kunne alle straks fornemme, at vi var vidne til en, der havde prøvet det før. Med totalt nærvær og et "Hello from Los Angeles California!"… Og så startede musikken: Whitney Houstons I Wanna Dance with Somebody. I modsætning til de fleste andre havde hun ikke blikket klistret til skærmen med sangteksten. Kun kiggede på publikum og dansede mens hun sang. Folk ude på gaden stoppede op og kiggede måbende ind på det lille sted. Det virkede som om, de tænkte ”Vent lidt… er Whitney ikke død alligevel?” Vi endte med at blive hængende i flere timer, og Shannon blev ved med at gå tilbage bag mikrofonen igen og igen. Du kan se hendes optræden herunder. https://youtu.be/nZnWVsxriJE ESCADARIA SELARÓN ELLER SELARÓN TRAPPERNE Den næste dag mødte jeg Shannon på Copacabana, og vi var stadig helt høje efter oplevelsen aftenen før. Vi gik langs med stranden indtil den skiftede navn til Ipanema. Her ville vi besøge deres ”hippy marked”, som er et loppemarked med farvestrålende tøj, musikinstrumenter, hatte og andre sjove ting. Herefter tog vi op til Escadaria Selarón, som også er kendt som Selarón Trapperne – en verdensberømt trappe, som er lavet af den chilensk-fødte Jorge Selarón. Han kaldte selv trappen “sin gave til det brasilianske folk”. Da han begyndte at renovere trappen foran sit hus i 1990, var der ellers mange naboer, der drillede ham for det vovede valg af farver. Han dækkede trappen med hele og halve blå, grønne og gule kakler. Farverne i det brasilianske flag. Det startede som et sideprojekt til hans egentlige passion – kunstmalerier, men blev hurtigt til nærmest en besættelse for ham. Hver gang han løb tør for penge til projektet (og det skete tit) solgte han lidt malerier for at få råd til flere kakler. Til sidst fik han dækket hele trappen 215 trin over 125 meter med mere end 2000 kakler og spejle som blandt andet var samlet fra mere end 60 lande. Der er endda også en ”God Jul-kakkel” fra Danmark. Det bliver betragtet som en af de store turistattraktioner i Rio de Janeiro – og folk fra hele verden valfarter hertil hver dag. Trappen er også kendt fra mange magasiner, aviser, rejseprogrammer, dokumentarer, reklamer og musikvideoer. National Geographic Channel, American Express, Coca-Cola, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, Time og selv Playboy har lavet optagelser på trappen. Den kan også ses i mange musikvideoer, som f.eks. Snoop Dogg og Pharrell Williams' Beautiful. Snoop og Pharrell er her ikke i dag, men vi mødte to lokale med hiphop-navne: Biggie og Dou. De hang ud på trappen, hvor nogen havde lavet en lille bar, hvor de solgte billige Caipirinha'er – en typisk brasiliansk cocktail. Dou fortæller: ”Der er mange fantastiske ting ved at bo i Rio. Vi lokale er meget varme mennesker, der er gavmilde med at give knus. Og det er sandt, hvad man siger: Vi lytter til samba og danser hver eneste dag” Jeg fik en prøve på et brasiliansk kram fra Dou, og jeg kan bekræfte, at det er sandt. Da jeg spørger dem om der er meget kriminalitet i byen – om det er en farlig by, siger de, at det er som enhver anden storby i verden. Der er naturligvis steder, man gerne skal undgå om natten. At bruge sin sunde fornuft er vigtigt. Shannon og jeg endte med at blive hængende med Biggie og Dou flere timer – og fik adskillige Caipirinhas. Alt i alt var det en fornøjelig weekend med en ven, jeg havde lært at kende på Nomad Cruise 7, en to-ugers ”flydende konference” fra Barcelona til Brasilien. NOMAD CRUISE Jeg steg ombord på skibet i Spanien sammen med 500 andre digitale nomader og iværksættere fra 42 forskellige lande. Det var to uger med netværk, foredrag og workshops, mens vi krydsede Atlanterhavet. Her mødte jeg gamle venner og lærte nye at kende. Jeg mødte blandt andet også Tarek Kholoussy, som er grundlægger af hjælpeorganisationen, Nomads Giving Back. FRA OVERHALINGSBANEN TIL HJÆLPEORGANISATION Tarek fortalte mig, at han altid har haft en passion for hjælpearbejde, men at hans baggrund var i overhalingsbanen på Wall Street. Det var mens, han arbejdede for Goldman Sachs, at han besluttede sig for at stå af rotteræset, løsne slipseknuden og blive digital nomade. På Nomad Cruise holdt han et foredrag om sin rejse gennem livet og sine mål, hvor et af dem var at starte en social entreprise. Og han afsluttede sin tale med at annoncere, at han nu startede ”Nomads Giving Back”, hvor vi nomader vil kunne give tilbage til de steder vi besøger og elsker. Et par dage efter, vi nåede Brasilien satte jeg mig ned med Tarek på en café i Porto de Galinhas på østkysten og fik en snak. Altså før vi ankom til Rio. Efter hans foredrag tilbød Nomad Cruise grundlægger, Johannes Voelkner, at indsamlingen ved den traditionelle ”fund raising dinner” kunne gå til Nomads Giving Back. “Alle digitale nomader er taknemmelige over det liv, vi lever – med at rejse verden rundt og opleve en masse spændende ting. Noget ikke alle er i stand til. Derfor giver det mening, at vi er i stand til at hjælpe de lokale på de steder vi besøger. De steder vi kalder hjem væk fra hjem”. TILBAGE I RIO MED NOMADS GIVING BACK Vi hopper tilbage til Rio de Janeiro, hvor jeg møder Tarek igen. Han har fundet det første project for Nomads Giving Back at hjælpe: Den filantropiske organisation og skole Solar Meninos de Luz der er at finde i en favela i nærheden af Copacabana. Tarek fortæller mig, at idéen til dette projekt var inspireret af Nomad Cruise konferencen, hvor deltagerne deler digitale færdigheder med hinanden (blandt meget andet). Tarek og Nomads Giving Back-teamet besluttede sig for at bruge en del af de penge, der blev samlet ind ved vores Fundraising Dinner på skibet til at skabe et program for unge studerende, hvor de lærer digitale færdigheder. Et program, de ellers ikke ville have adgang til. Mange digitale nomader tjener deres penge med deres digitale evner, og Tarek mente, at det ville give mening at lede efter noget, der var inden for dette område. I min snak med Tarek kommer vi ind på, hvor heldige vi er at være i stand til at leve som nomader – og om, hvorfor vi gerne vil give tilbage til de steder vi besøger. ”Digitale nomader er for det meste mennesker, der ikke er super-rige. Men vi kan gøre så meget andet, der ikke kræver bunker af penge. At være nomade handler om at have valgmuligheder, og en del af det definerer, hvad der er vigtigt for os. Og når vi går sammen, kan vi gøre en masse; f.eks. samlede vi tusindevis af Euros ind ved middagen på Nomad Cruise 7”. I næsten 40 år har Solar Meninos de Luz hjulpet de fattige i dette lokalsamfund. På skolen får vi en rundvisning af den 27-årige Manu, der selv er tidligere elev på skolen. Hun kom hertil da hun var bare tre måneder gammel, og er på denne måde en perfekt ambassadør for stedet. "Jeg har været her i 27 år og har en holistisk tilgang til måden, vi arbejder med lokalsamfundet. Vi har 420 elever, 115 frivillige og 113 medarbejdere på skolen. Vi tilbereder også mere end 1.200 måltider hver dag. Eleverne får noget at spise morgen, middag og aften fra de ankommer kl. 7.00 om morgenen indtil de tager hjem kl. 18.00. Så vi laver 3 måltider til hver elev hver dag. Det er hårdt arbejde, men vi elsker det, vi laver her. " Manu fortæller os videre, at skolen er afhængig af både offentlige tilskud og private donationer for at holde det hele kørende. Vi gik rundt på skolen og mødte nogle af eleverne. Vi var derefter vidne til en forestilling med musik og dans af eleverne. De opførte et krybbespil, hvor rollen som Jesus blev spillet af en levende baby. Det var virkelig fantastisk og så dejligt at se ungerne synge og danse. Herefter kom et voksenkor på scenen og gav endnu en utrolig optræden. MERE OM SOLAR MENINOS DE LUZ I gåafstand fra Solar Meninos de Luz ligger Copacabana Palace, som et af Brasiliens største og mest luksuriøse hoteller. Det var stedet for et fundraising-arrangement. Den vilde kuksus på stedet er en kæmpe kontrast til favelaen kort derfra. Men det er både charmen og kompleksiteten ved denne historiske by. Solar Meninos de Luz er en fantastisk filantropisk organisation, der fremmer uddannelse, sport, kunst og kultur, sundhedspleje og støtte til faglig uddannelse. Det blev grundlagt for 34 år siden og har hjulpet mere end 5000 lokale. Den berømte brasilianske forfatter Paolo Cohelo, der blandt andet skrev The Alchemist (1988) og The Pilgrimage (1987), er en mangeårig sponsor af skolen. Han donerede endda sin villa, som nu er en del af skolen og fungerer som bibliotek. Efter måneders planlægning lancerede Nomads Giving Back deres ”Digital Skills Program”, hvor 14 elever lærte ting som content marketing, SEO og Facebook-, Instagram- og LinkedIn-marketing. De lærte at tænke strategisk, finde potentielle kunder, promovere deres personlige brand, effektiv brug af social-media og meget mere. Herefter var de i stand til at bruge det, de havde lært til at starte og udvikle deres egen virksomhed eller bedre forberede sig på jobmuligheder. MIT MASTERCARD BLEV KOPIERET Jeg modtog pludselig et opkald fra min bank i Danmark, hvor de fortalte mig, at de havde set en mistænkelig aktivitet på mit MasterCard. Tilsyneladende havde noget forsøgt at hæve $ 400 fra min konto midt om natten i USA. Så nu havde de spærret mit kort. Heldigvis rejser jeg også med et Visa kort, så mine samba-licious eventyr kunne fortsætte. Jeg fandt senere ud af, at mit kort blev kopieret af en person, der havde bevæget sig tæt på mig med en eller anden form for elektronisk dims, som kunne kopierede alle oplysninger via den trådløse funktion på mit kort. Måske var det sket på markedet om søndagen, hvor jeg var sammen med mange mennesker. Siden da har jeg fået en ny pung, hvor mine kort er beskyttet i en metalkasse. SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN Sugarloaf Mountain er en af Rios mest ikoniske turistattraktioner. Det er en smuk klippe på kysten, der er 396 meter høj. Et udsigtspunkt, hvor man kan se Rio de Janeiro i fugleperspektiv fra Guanabara -bugten. Svævebaneturen op til toppen er en oplevelse, og udsigten fra toppen er storslået. Den originale svævebane blev bygget i 1912 og derefter genopbygget i '70'erne – og igen i 2008 forud for VM i fodbold og De Olympiske Lege. Jeg havde planlagt at tage til toppen med en håndfuld andre digitale nomader, og vi startede med en vandretur på en af bakkerne. Derefter tog vi med svævebanen det sidste stykke til toppen af Sugarloaf Mountain. Vi nåede derop lige i tide for at se solnedgangen. Og hold da op, hvor var det anstrengelserne værd. Mens solen går ned over Rio de Janeiro, er det også tid til at lade solen gå ned på denne episode. Mit navn er Palle Bo, og jeg skal videre. Vi ses.
