Nick decided yesterday that he would like to go see a football match whilst we were in Brazil and on checking we found out that Flamengo one of the top teams was playing a friendly this afternoon. I thought it would be a good idea to let Nick make all the arrangements as it was his idea. In true Nick fashion we set off late to catch the Metro (the Rio Metro has 2 lines - we caught the wrong one) which made us even later. When we got there I find we are not at the Stadium but at the site of the Rio Carnival, which is currently a building site which you cannot get into, as he thought it would be a good idea to go there on the way. By this time we were even later so I decided to go back to the hostel. Todays picture is the view of our hostel which is hidden in the trees (N.B. this photo was not taken today as I definetly did not look in the slightest bit happy when we got back!) Tomorrow we go back to the world trip plan which has worked until now i.e. I make all decisions and shout at Nick a lot to make sure he is where he is supposed to be, doing what he's supposed to be doing!
