Try it - its definitely different, but you get to see a part of the city that 99% of backpackers and probably half of Cariocans (rio dwellers - something like that) never get to see.
The guy who runs it is lovely and breakfast normally lasts an hour or so, covers several courses and numerous anecdotes from Bob.
You feel totally safe there - it felt very strange walking along the alley the first time, but after that felt quite at home. The place really is a maze, but pretty cool too.

... definitely, prefer the small, out of the way towns that are less touristy. Our home exchange was about 45 minutes from the airport and, I must admit that we weren't impressed with the part of Rio that we drove through. The apartment where we stayed was in a pretty nice neighborhood, but it was still the city. However, how could we come all the way to South America and not visit Rio, at least for a short stay.

... has to offer. Of course, a visit had to be made to the Christ the Redeemer statue. We left the flat and caught the bus around midday in order to get the afternoon sun at the top...little did we know that a three hour queue awaited us!! As the sun moved across the sky (the sun sets around 5pm here as its winter) and all the kiosks ran out of any kind of food, we wondered if the wait would be worth it - that is, until someone mentioned that during the summer season ...
... a staple diet here. Very yummy and fully endorsed by Sechaba, my very own nutritionist aka hubby. Everyday we feature the beans in our meals. Can't wait to discover more local food and to make friends with locals. Language is a big barrier. We have absolutely no plans for the rest of our time here. My guess is beach, sleep & read. Would love to hike up Suger Loaf mountain, but we'll see. I seriously miss my hiking buddies . Either way the adventures ...
... to some.
Would we do that?
No disrespect shown but we do have a selfie with our new best friend.
We have our fill of the panorama of Rio below us, the fog of earlier has lifted and we make our way to ipanema beach- at least a 45 minute bus ride from Christ.
This easterly- facing beach is in in the dying light of the day when we arrive, but we get the energy of the locals who play beach football and a game with two aside that graham ...
Looking out of the window of our night bus as dawn breaks we get a glimpse of Rio's (in)famous favelas coming into the city. Thousands of shacks built crudely on top of each other that stretch for miles into the hills. We hear of recent reports of police 'death squads' who are very liberal with their bullets in order to cleanse the areas of drug lords before the World Cup. Apparently this is a practice common in Brazil since the 1970's and when we enquire to tour the favelas with a guide ...
