Must say it looks to be the most beautiful setting in the world. Certainly beats Cape Town hands down.

I agree. There can be no more scenic setting on this earth than Rio. Can't wait for the World Cup and Olympics.

I've been to Cape Town and was underwhelmed. I think South Africans bang on about it and Table Mountain because they haven't many scenic parts in their country. I think New Zealand is beautiful but haven't visited.

Anyway people waking up in Rio must be the luckiest alive.

I have travelled to several countries in the southern hemisphere and trust me none can hold a candle to stunning Rio. However Hobart comes a pretty close second.
