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.

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 …
... about all the military peoples uniform, what does this mean? What does that mean? He's gun is strapped to him, I wonder why? Is that their blood type? lol. My response, "Who cares!!!" lol. So we made our way into the stadium and once again it was nice and smooth, no lines, no fuss. We walked right through to security where they scanned our bags and we walked through the metal detector. Inside was like a festival, the music was pumping, the beers were flowing, people were ...
... br> I also saw the Dutch national team on their way down. Which is a shame as if I'd been half an hour earlier I could have pushed Arjen Robben off over the edge. We know how he likes to dive.
On the way down it was completely dark and the funicular was brightly lit by fluorescents. As we rumbled through the sub-tropical forest it was fairly inevitable that some kind of airborne creepy-crawley was going to make its way in. ...
