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!

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. ...
... hotel so after several conversations with other pickup people we caught a taxi to Puerto Bay Hotel ourselves. Spoke to Chimu when we got to hotel but weren't very helpful. Hotel upgraded us to a luxury room, not better than we have had but have got full beach ...
... Hill in a cog rail to see The famous 38 metre high, Christ the Redeemer. What an awesome sight, and the views of Rio from there were breathtaking. Lucky with the weather, it can be a total whiteout here at this time of the year if the rains come. Sugar Loaf mountain is yet another great attraction in Rio. A cable car was constructed in 1910 to take tourists. How innovative! It was famous also for a scene in the James Bond movie ...
