Where to start? Rio is a an amazingly good looking city. Been to Sugarloafmountain today, also been to Ipanema Beach. As well now being probably my favourite city it is also definitely the hottest. The journey went fairly smoothly, bit of turbulence on the plane, but not serious. Only slight problem was the taxi driver not bein able to find my hostel. Despite me giving the adddress and supplying a map (you would think they would have an A to Z). Dont think he would make much of a planner. The lesson is, though, try not to arrive in the middle of the night in foreign cities!
Off on a bit of trip tomorow, the Maracana, Copacabana and the Sambadromo. Should be good, especially the first bit. Also, for anyone interested, I think I saw Ian Rush at Heathrow, legend that he is. My portugese is coming along nicely, think I know about four words or phrases now,but important ones like thank you and one beer please!
