... streets with the beautiful people were washed away. Undeterred we headed out to Lapa and were drawn into a bar by some live samba music.

Also, being Saturday, there was far less traffic so we were soon on our way to the central city area to see the sights. Our first stop was the cathedral, a truly impressive modern building. Even Derek was impressed! The architecture was amazing and I would imagine it would be really impressive ...
