    Great little place in Santa Teresa

    A small friendly Pousada / Guest House (I still don't know the difference between the 2!) tucked away in Santa Teresa. Really friendly place with nice little plunge pool, great when it gets hot - and Rio gets very hot! Cracking view of the Santa Teresa hill and into downtown Rio. Tasty breakfast. Only slight downside is that it can be dangerous late at night around there.

    Day 4: Rio de Janeiro

    I didn't think it was possible, but the temperature was increasing in Rio!

    Today was another Bloco day - there were about 50 across Rio during the day, the build up to carnival was really getting going. It also meant getting anywhere was near impossible as most roads were shut for the parties.

    Day 3: Rio De Janeiro

    Another late start after the Bloco......... but it didn't matter, being unemployed is great!

    Like every good city Rio has an Irish bar or 2. As it was 6 nations rugby day, I trouped down the hill to find the one nearby that Trip Advisor recommended...... 2 hours later I gave up! My feet hurt even more again. …

    Day 2: Rio De Janeiro

    Today was my first moving day, heading up to a guest house in Santa Teresa, just a mile or so towards the North of the city, nestled up in the hills.

    I was a bit late getting going and grabbed a taxi at midday, it was scorchio. More communication issues..... might sound an obvious thing to say but Portuguese …

    ... in Rio and to be honest I thought it wouldn't be too dissimilar to the Redeemer, minus the huge statue. This time we took the Metro as the distance between the station and attraction didn't look too far on the map- but looks can be deceiving! After walking for about 45 minutes in the boiling sunshine, stopping off at various gas stations along the way for a quick hit of air conditioning, we finally made it. Again, it took a chunk out of our daily budget but this was as ...

    ... In short, it made us think that here we are, travelling around a third world continent and yet they are far more civilised than we are. How did this happen? On the Sunday we had our tickets to the Sambadrome. This is a specially built facility to hold 80,000 people to watch six Samba schools, samba down the street for 9 hours. Each school spends around $3-4m on their 7 floats and they are allocated 1 hour 20 mins to try and win a place for the final night. It was ...
