Corcovado Cheeseburger

June 4, 2009 at 7:26 am 3 comments

At 0730 on a Saturday morning, how does the conceirge of a 5-star hotel in Rio De Janeiro respond to the statement, “I am on a quest, I must eat a cheesburger on the summit of Corcovado” As it turns out the same way he responds to any request, at any time, “Of course sir, it is no problem.” In very little time I have a cheeseburger and am on my way to Corcovado to take in the views, see the Christ the Redeemer statue and consume said cheeseburger. Summit hike was several flights of stairs from where the approach vehicle parked. Ascent and descent were made without incident. Cheeseburger was OK, views were excellent. The statue is more impressive than it looks on TV or in photos. I recommend this summit.
