... of party. 'Ooohs' and 'Aaahs' were exclaimed upon viewing some big statue atop a mountain, far off in the distance. The streets grew busier, the buildings grew denser, and soon we disembarked the orange vessel for the very last time. The time for repacking was now; no more camping gear or hiking boots were needed, and several items of clothing had to find their way to a laundrymaster, stat. Twas the night before New Years, and officially the last day of the tour, except ...

... with me. Maybe because of the Olympics/World Cup the city is safer or maybe I am just a more seasoned traveller. Whatever the reason Rio is amazing and I wish we had had more time.

... the difficult relationship between the authorities and the poor. In contrast to this we ate at one of Rio's finest all you can eat churrascias that evening for Kai's farewell, not 15 minutes from the favela that afternoon.
Hiking the two brothers mountain the following day was perhaps the highlight of Rio. You get a mototaxi up through the pacified favela to the foot of the mountain, and I think my knuckles are still white from it. These guys drive like Ben Cousins when ...
