    ... favela in Rio. This involved winding our way, sometimes with streams of sewage, down the steep alleys between tiny houses stacked on top of each other. Enroute we stopped at a local art gallery and bakery and were entertained by a local samba band (2 boys hitting bins) complete with dancing children. The money received from tourism is put to good work funding a local nursery. Towards the end of the tour we were asked to put our cameras away as we walked past the local mafia members, ...

    Rio - A Childhood Dream Come True

    ... wet. Given the rain, we convinced ourselves that the banana's and ice cream was a good option to wait out the rain. Yet another good choice.

    Our hotel is ok, it's new and everything's ok but it does remind me just a little bit (based on size) of some of the hotels (bizaness hotels) that Tom and I had while we were in Japan. It's very small but efficient. We're only here for three days so we'll be good I'm sure. The weather ...

    ... we caught a VW Combi van to the bottom of the hill. Saved us walking deep through the favela. Something that could easily turn bad. After a late check out and having to pay an extra 100R Jarry, Kane, Wilson and myself checked into another hostel just around the corner. Mikey and Luis had seen everything they wanted to in Rio so left to go to Iila Grande, where we will meet them in a couple days. We checked in then ...

    ... a street party where we met a Brazilian lad who took us on to a club called 00 which we didn't even get in to until 3am but was a great night when we got in Next day was Belgium v Russia at the Maracană which again wasn't the best game, particularly when pretty hungover, but the stadium is quality and the atmosphere was really good. Early to bed that night ready to get an 8am bus back to Belo Horizonte next ...

    ... library in Rio established by the local Portuguese community - the wealthy ones, obviously. The library has volumes dating back to the 1600's (maybe older) and modern volumes as well. If a book is published in Portugual, a copy makes it way to this library. The items circulate, but only for members of the Royal Gabinete Society. It is open to the public to use the volumes in house. I could not quite figure out what ...
