          Felipe is a bad owner

          The owner is a piece of shit. Was supposed to go on a boat tour and we waited on the beach for about an hour. I finally approached him saying is there a boat coming? He told me to shut up. There should have been some kind of organization to this tour and he should never tell someone to shut up over his mistake. The owner named Felipe spilled his rum on the table and almost ruined my iphone and was drunk all the time to the point it looked like his eyes were going to roll into the back of his head.

          From the moment I even boarded the plane for Brazil, everything was different. There was no more Spanish, no more short, dark skinned Latin Americans, no more cheap food and accommodation, no more of my familiar brands and street foods, no more women with gallon hats, two long braids and traditional skirts, nothing except for a vague sense that I …

          Arrial do cabo is a 3 hour bus ride north or Rio. It really was a strange place because the town is quite old, poor and ugly and the beaches are amazing. I came here because I saw a hostel that looked like a good time. They organize boat trips during the day and everyone seems to have fun. The town is kind of on a peninsula so there is a beach in …

          Visit one: The Hostel "Rio is the best city in the world - you're going to love it here." This was what we were told as we were shown around our hostel; having arrived at around 6am and fallen asleep on a couch in the common room for five hours...we smiled pleasantly and felt hopeful. Looking around the four bed dorm, it was a far cry from our ' …

Once our tour was over, he dropped us off at what he referred to as one of the best restaurants for authentic Brazilian food in the area. Well, our experience would say otherwise!!! It was a self-service `pay by the kilo´ set-up, and obviously neither of us have a concept of how much a kilo actually is, so we cautiously piled a random mix of food onto our plates, and sat down to sample these supposed ...
