Well have been into Rio again and had an awesome time there. Went up sugar loaf mountain which was a 3 hour task and then off to Statue of Christ which was amazing. The views were fantastic all around as it was a well clear day. Managed to get some tack and a couple of great souvenirs for the wall. Havent worked out how i will get all this stuff back from hong kong but i will give it a real good go anyway.
Went up past the shanty town to where Ronny Biggs used to live when he was out here. Its still as poor as when i visited 10 years ago but a very exciting, dangerous place. Well worth a visit for 5 days.
