Olla from sunny Rio!!
Well after an 11 hour flight filled with a smelly women in front with flatulance problems and a women behind who coughed up phlem the whole journey (nice!) Dean and I finally arrived In Rio international airport.
We had a guided tour through Rio and up to a really boheimian village called Santa Teresa from our taxi driver ´Flavia´ who was i swear a GIANT! He was lovely and totally put my nerves at bay having arrived in the vast city slightly scared by all the stories and well wishes in UK saying ´´please stay safe!! ´
It was around 10pm when we got to our hostel (we are 4 hours behind UK time) and after having a mini heart attack climbing the stairs of the hstel we settled in to our double private room complete with Hamock!. The view from our window is imense (will upload piccies soon!) and of course we headed straight to the hostel bar to be welcomed by Caiprianhas (amazing local drink!) and the local staff and brazzilians were awsome, some slightly crazy! Macbeth rendition in Portuguese! local Ganja flying round (we kindly declined!) but just a brilliant vibe.
This morning over breakfast we met an english couple, Jen and Steve, we are all off to explore the city today and find our bearings, its uncanny how much we all have in common!
So this is just a quick update to say, we are here, we are well and we miss you all!!!!
