Poet's Notes about The Poem

Yes that's right, pretty much the entire city of Rio de Janeiro has been given world heritage status. The area in question is actually officially described as 'the Carioca Landscapes between the Mountain and the Sea, ' which include the Botanical Gardens, Corcovado Mountain and the famous statue of Christ, the hills around Guanabara Bay and Copacabana Bay. Barry Manilow would be proud. - MSN website.
