    ... and every few 100m were metal gym sets to get a quick upper body workout. It was sweet as. We cruised along the beach as the sun was starting to set behind the mountains. Sunset was awesome before we went up and grabbed food from the Zona Sul supermarket to cook up dinner etc and made our way back to the hostel. We arrived back and the kitchen was full so we gave it an hour before we went down, cooked up dinner before heading up to bed in prep to get a big day of beach action in ...

    Woke early enough because we were doing a free walking tour of Rio so we got ourselves sorted and grabbed a taxi. We got stuck in traffic which meant we arrived 10mins late but thankfully the tour guide was still introducing herself to the group. Everytime we introduce ourselves to a group/tour guide and we say we're Irish someone will always come over and say something like "You guys are Irish huh? You must drink a lot of Guinness" or "I love Ireland". ...

    ... is a simple and cheap way to see the statue. The train option does look great but it must be booked a few days in advance and they allocate you a set time slot. The shuttle queues are long so make sure you are there at 7:30 am to get on the first van. Tickets for Copacabana pickup are not available online but you would need to speak Portuguese to complete the online payment. The shuttle option was great, our driver however, thought ...

    ... The tour guide kept banging on about how strong the construction was. I have my doubts, ramshackled rabbit warrens spring to mind. I have been told this is a very geologically sound part of the world, that's lucky a lot of people could end up in big trouble if there were an earthquake. They had trouble getting things ready for The World Cup I hope the preparations for the Olympics won't be the same. Things look a bit unfinished and the traffic is ...
