There are those who say God created the world in six days and devoted a seventh to Rio. The city is indeed blessed with one of the most stunning settings in the world, making it the most naturally beautiful city in the world. Even if it was deserted of buildings and population, anyone standing at the top of the famous Sugarloaf Mountain or by the Corcovado statue would see one of the world's most beautiful landscapes. Green, tropical luxuriance mixes with the blue of the ocean and the brightness of the sand at the beaches, proving that this is indeed "the marvelous city" as locals call it.
BTW this conky setup requires version 1.7.2 if you want to use the panel window type. In addition this conky is made with a 1280x1024 resolution in mind. If your resolution is narrower, the sides will be cut off.
1. Extract archive to your home folder.
2. To start, run conky.

Here is a completely re-done and revamped version of my original and most popular deviation: ONE PLANET_ [link] . I did this because the original version was done when I still had my PC and after it crashed I lost the original PSD version. I honestly have more countries in this than ever before and it took much longer to try and fit it all in. I am really sorry if I missed your country; it seems I've made a few human errors. If there are countries not on here, they were not left out purposely; and I am truly really sorry if I offended anyone.
I tried to go along the same color scheme as the original and fixed everything that got criticisms in the past. So now you can enjoy this in all its beauty in high resolution. If you download it, you will get a beautiful 4060x2536 view of it and be able to see every country (even the smallest ones).
Sorry, I have to close downloads - it's a shame it has to come to this but people are stealing it! Thank-you to everyone for the continued support!
ALSO: Thanks to ^archanN for the feature here(Oct. 8, 2008): [link]
ALSO ALSO: Today(Oct. 10, 2008) I was given a link to a youtube video where this was featured [link] ... I gave permission for it to be used for the intro to a segment in an Australian Television show.
ONE LAST THING: If I end up getting an alarming amount of comments/favorites (like has happened in the past) I'm sorry if I don't get back to you, because there is just too much to respond to! But if you want to get in touch use the note system or reach me at my email at email@example.com !!
Sometimes nature throws perfection at you, and if you're lucky you are able to capture it – I made an attempt.
On the cable car ride to Pão de Açúcar.
It was the little details that made me want to feature this one: the lens flare, the intricacies of the cables, the mist in the mountains. I felt it showed an interesting balance between the natural and the man-made.
