You'll noticed I skimmed over the fourth day off carnival. As sad as I am to admit it was where so drained that we didn't really do much, a mooch round Lapa in the day but stayed in during the night. The thought process was to rest and kill it for the final night which we actually managed to do. Waking up fresh on the final carnival day we meet up with the brummies and head to copacobana beach. Fully on it for the final day, the beers start flowing early and party's already there. We join in with a few block parties and head back to the hostel late afternoon to get ready for the final stint of carnival. Everyones up for the final day, the brummies, and the group that I went out with on the second night. We all pre drink in the kitchen before hitting the Lapa for a final time. Whilst walking into the main party area theres a group on the stage playing Beatles tunes (with horrific brazilian accents) which draws us towards the stage. We push our way to the front and dance and sing like the Beatles are actually there until they finish there set. We then wonder further into Lapa to finish our night to the familiar sound of samba. The early hours approach and we head back knowing that that will be the final time we'll see carnival. A sad time but a good night as an ending. The following morning, the Wednesday, all is not calm. We head out onto the streets and although not as crazy there is still abit of the vibe, masks and drums still wonder the street. Do they not know its finished? No, they're brazillian. Anyways it has for us and we dedicate the following few days organising the trip for the girls. With a few beers along the way of course, withdrawal symptoms from carnival, we find out where our hotel is, see if we can check in, find out how to visit the christ and generally just chill out to regen for when the girls arrive on Friday.
