Very different but very good

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.

... my lesson now - I'm a pasty blonde white kid, I'm probably gonna need sun cream everywhere. The favela tour was incredible in the afternoon, obviously I knew a but about them but when you're actually inside there and realise people actually live there it was pretty crazy. We got a minibus to near the top of the favela then pretty much just walked down, the start was good but when we got to a point where the guide warned us not to take any photos or else the drug ...

... also happened to be base camp for a hang gliding company and saw numerous soon to be jumpers, some looking elated, others trembling. Before reaching the trailhead we had to climb about a quarter mile up a cobblestone road which had to have been a 30% grade and was a good way to stretch the legs after a long and adrenaline filled bus ride. We had teamed up with the Brits by the time we reached the trail head and all checked in as one group since we didn't have a ...

Favela Funk Party!

... already on the dance floor dancing in sync, choreographed almost, like line dancing.

We were warned to just stay in the second floor VIP. The guide told us the first floor is only for locals -- and it could get aggressive. That made me curious. And when I'm curious I explore. So the three of us went downstairs and ended up partying there with the locals the rest of the night. It was indeed aggressive with the pumping ...

Rio Carnaval and hedonism

... the streets, 24/7, and it's so cheap - you can buy cans of Smirnoff ice for about $3NZD. Actually stuff is pretty cheap already compared tomNZ and they say Rio is one of the most expensive places in South America. The street food is amazing, and the meals you buy in the restaurants are enough to serve 2 people! Brazilian women really do wear bikinis regardless of age, shape or size, with most of them being thong bikinis. For a country that is known as the plastic surgery ...
