Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Wow, we are finally here! South America......
Rio is amazing, I am having a whale of a time.
We arrived on Tuesday with no problems, from there we went directly to Hostel Ipenima beach house as planned. Wednesday was spent getting used to the heat and humidity, wandering around & planning.
Come Thursday we moved to a new lodging, and then went to visit the Mosaic Steps at in Santa Teresa (Lapa). We walked around for absolutely ages, in this old school colonial area, and then out of nowhere we found them, thousands of brightly coloured tiles! Definitely worth it! That evening we had a BBQ, all our hostel clubbed together to buy beer and meat. We set up on Ipenima beach, and relaxed eating the freshly grilled food and drinking our Skol cerveja!!
Today was spent relaxing on Copacabanna then taking the cable car for sunset on Sugarloaf mountain. As Emily will probably tell you the view was so beautiful.
We are about to go to for a ´Good Friday´ party at Lapa (thanks for the recomendation sis), which should be good fun.
Anyway sorry about the long message, lots of waffle.
