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.

... 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 ...
