Poet's Notes about The Poem

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.
