      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 …

      Brazil - Rio de Janeiro

      ... few drinks, we had a go at salsa - the single girls were already looking like pros being led around by Brazilian men. However we weren't such naturals haha after crashing into a few couples, bruising each other's feet and a few ill times twirls we gave up. The next morning we had our favela tour which was an experience. We walked 2km from the too to the bottom of Rosenia, the biggest favela in South America. There were strict ...

      ... share good and bad) is that Rio's sewerage system handles toilet paper rather than putting it in the bucket beside the toilet like the rest of Brazil. Regan is out having our last our dinner which I am gutted to be missing on but it was just a no go. After I left the tour Regan went to the central cathedral, it was built in the 1970s and is very unusual. Here is hoping we do better in Christchurch. The last stop was up to the top of the Sugar Loaf via the two ...
