Contributor Hasam Adin created this gorgeous drone video of Rio de Janeiro at sunset.  Much of the footage was shot around Sugar Loaf Mountain, the improbably shaped hill in Guanabara Bay.  It's one of the top attractions in Rio, and has been a shooting location for numerous films and TV shows.  Famously, the cablecar running to the top of the mountain (which you'll see at the :30 mark) was the location for a scene in the 1977 James Bond movie Moonraker starring Roger Moore, the 12th in the series.

Niterói is a sort of (much smaller) twin to the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.  It sits across the great Guanabara Bay from the larger city, a sort of Oakland to the San Francisco of Rio.  The area is sometimes used to define the larger area on the east side of its bay, only part of which is in the Niterói city limits.  In this drone video by Digital Peace, you'll get a nice aerial view of the beaches on the Niterói side of the great bay, north and east of central Rio.
