Flat Mr. Hunter in Rio!

How about this?  
Flat Mr. Hunter recently traveled to Rio de Janeiro for the first time!

His enthusiastic traveling companions were Barbara and Yoko, who decided to bring Flat Mr. Hunter on the cable car to enjoy the view from Sugarloaf Mountain (official name: Pão de Açúcar).  The real Mr. Hunter was most pleased to see the resulting snapshots, and he's more inspired than ever to get his own wooden self down to Rio.

and a peek at the Christ the Redeemer statue on Corcovado.

Getting ready to ride the cable car at Pão de Açúcar.

These views are beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

Bonus sighting: a Sagui Monkey (aka Common Marmoset).

The clouds seem to be echoing the shape of Corcovado.  Uncanny!

Faites la connaissance d'Hélène

Meet Hélène!
Mr. Hunter's first pose with the elegant Hélène 
included this random, bearded sculpture from Adam's cube.

These two hit it off right away, and since that first meeting, Hélène has taken Flat Mr. Hunter (ahem, Monsieur Hunter) along on several journeys in the United States and beyond.  Fun!

The lovely Helene gave him a taste of resort life in Ixtapa.

Où est Monsieur Hunter? - La réponse

Where was Flat Mr. Hunter when he sat in the palm of this blissed-out statue?
Taking it easy in Ixtapa, Mexico and vacationing with Helene.

Où est Monsieur Hunter?

Flat Mr. Hunter was vacationing with Helene--one of his favorite traveling companions--when he encountered this happy-looking sculpture.  
Where do you suppose this meeting took place?

(Hint: it was someplace warm.  
And not someplace where they speak French!)

Here's the post with the answer.
