Onto day 5 now....Wednesday. This was a v.busy day. Minibus picked us all up at 9am (!!) to take us on a tour. 1st stop was Corcovado mountain where the Christ the Redeemer statue is. Fantastic views but my camera ran out of battery after just a couple of shots (doh!). Bit of a hairy ride up the mountain and got a rickety old tram some of the way down. Only 10p but could understand why as people were hanging off the thing almost being squished by walls and oncoming trams. Quite fun apart from a sore botty. The tram came to a stop in downtown Rio where we went for lunch in a fabulous place which I can't remember the name of. Had the best steak I've ever tasted in my life. Next stop was some church....don't know the name of it (not sure we were ever told actually) very big and garish on the inside. Got back to the hotel around 5 ish with just an hour until we all had to meet up again for the hen/stag nights!! Us girls were taken to a ladies night at some bar in downtown Rio. Was quite an eye opener....the brazilian girls were going crazy groping the strippers and getting up on stage. Our night came to an early end though as Monica had had far too many Caipirinhas and was crying and pining for Andrew (blurgh!). I heard the guys had an equally interesting night at some seedy lap dancing joint. Not the best place to take your dad really! The next day was spent recovering and collecting the dresses. In the evening we all went for dinner to a churesqueria where they have a buffet and all you can eat meat that they bring around on big skewers.....I would highly recommend it although I'm now sick of the sight of meat.....the end.....for now!
