    ... pasta of artichoke, asparagus and cherry tomatoes and a gin and tonic. The good stuff. A bit outside my daily budget but well worth it although I was a little distracted somewhat as some poor middle aged woman next to me sobbed into her mobile phone and glass of vino. I just wanted to give her a big hug. I really love Rio. I'd come back, but not on my own. You need someone to play with to really enjoy all that Rio has to offer. Especially the night life.

    ... entry, drinks, service charge) and our bill was three reais more than we had. Played the innocent foreigner card and got away with it! Jack (proof read and edited by rebecca) Wed 10th sep Rio Hostel finally showed us it's weakness - breakfast. We'd gotten used to morning feasts so far in Brazil but this was not.
