    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 …

    ... very close to the town. The colourful birds were great. No, we haven’t turned in to twitchers, but our trip was complete when we saw a toucan sitting in the tree at the waterfalls.
    It has been great staying with Chris, with his appartment being so close to Copacabana and Iponema beaches. He came with us to the Iguacu Falls and we did enjoy the soakings on the boat ride! He has ...

    ... to understand why this was allowed to go on. Impoverished as they are though, the favela residents like to live there and consider it home since they don't know any different. They build a community little by little, run businesses, and have a full life that meets their needs and standards. Their health care is non existent and their level of education low. Men in the community are taught trades while women are expected to take care of the home and kids. Only touring ...
