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.

... guitarist as they busked a smooth number. A little further on, we walked past a statue of Tom Jobim, Brazilian musical legend and pioneer of bossa nova. He is immortalised strolling along the promenade in his shirt sleeves casually holding a Spanish guitar over his shoulder. His most famous song in English is 'The girl from Ipanema' (which Ben's brother played a version of at our wedding!) Apparently, the real-life girl from Ipanema now has a fashion boutique brand with shops ...
... it in Rio, shame we’re not here for long. Fernanda then hustled 4 of us into a taxi so we could take a ride in the cable car up the Sugar Loaf. David had only arrived early that morning so decided to go back to the hotel to get some sleep. It was a perfect time to go up the Sugar Loaf, 3.30 in the afternoon, as there were no queues to wait in and we got straight to the top in minutes. And OMG!!! It is just incredible. From below you have absolutely no concept ...
... locals it was ok. The only thing that made it feel slightly edgy was the numerous stories and history that we had read about before our arrival.
City of Beef
Without question we had to try the beef in Brazil. With mainly sticking to our pasta and tomato sauce diet, it felt about the right time to treat ourselves. So, catching up with a couple of lads from Cambridge, Oscar and Phil who we had previously met in Paraty and our new Kiwi friends ...
... and it felt amazing to be right below such an iconic monument. The train which took us up the hill was slightly hair-raising... every time we stopped and the driver did a hill start (it was pretty steep) we rolled back a few metres...! All in all it was a great weekend! I am heading to Ilha Grande and Paraty next which are further down the Costa Verde (the coastline that runs south of Rio) to enjoy the beaches and go snorkelling for the first ...
... got back to the hotel just before the rain started up again and spent the rest of the day chilling out; mentally I've checked out and am back home- I don't really feel like I'm in South America anymore. Tomorrow is basically time for breakfast and final packing before I need to catch the cab to the airport. Thanks for having me South America- it's been unforgettable. I'll write a final tally when I'm safely back home and I can guarantee it won't change again ...
