Postcard #17: Baia de Guanabara—Brazil

This Baia de Guanabara (Guanabara Bay) postcard from Marcio becomes my first card from Brazil, South America. I requested this postcard because I adore its aerial view at night. The Rio de Janeiro's city lights and the sugarloaf mountain seen from a distance looks so  impressive. The unique cityscape makes it widely considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, making it one of the world's premier tourist destinations. :)

Marcio put three stamps on the postcard. From left to right the stamps depict Trompete (trumpet), Sapateiro (shoemaker), and Vila Inglesa de Paranapiacaba (an English village that was established as a company town for the employees of São Paulo Railway, a privately owned British railway company) in Santo Andre. 

Muito obrigado!
