    This is a little hostel in the middle of one of the most easy going favelas. We took the double room after a long flight and it was more then worth it. A master bed, including a private bathroom and toillet, a prime view over Rio itself and by night you get to see a jungle of lights! Every morning you get a breakfast (included) excisting out of coffee, cheese and ham, butter, jam, dulce de leche and fresh fruit every day. It's so close to the center that everything you wanna do is easy by foot.
    The only downpart is finding this little paradise in the first place.

    Arrived in Rio this morning at 08:00 and from the view from the bus immediatley could tell that the place is poorer than Sao Paulo (state and city). The favelas get very close to the roads and the quality of infrastucure is not as good.
    We took a bus from the bus station to the hostel (which is in the Copacabana district, two blocks from the beach), ...

    ... neighborhood. Nonetheless, we met up with Emmett and two of his young lady friends (one of whom – Theresa – was from Bethesda, Maryland) for dinner and drinks. I am not sure if the spectacular views of Rio and the bay and beaches were enough for Heather to forgive us, or whether it was simply our riveting conversation and fabulous company! Either way, we passed the evening with good drink, good company and a scintillating view of the Rio de ...

    ... very safe though I don't remember seeing any tourists. If you're planning a trip to Rio I would recommend going to São Cristovão Market because the whole thing was a taste of real life in Brazil. Sunday - Today we switched hotels. I really wanted to be in Arpoador which is between Copacabana and Ipanema. This hotel has much smaller rooms and isn't half as nice as our last because we're in the more ritzy part of town. I clearly hadn't had enough ...

    ... list of wonders of the world when it is restricted to 7 things. After the redeemer we jumped back in the shuttle and headed to sugar loaf islands. Here we caught the cable car up to the first island to check it out before thaking the second cable car to the second island for the full view. The views were amazing up here and we spent 20mins checking them out and getting snaps. A very touristy day but well worth it. Saw some interestng things along the way with ...

    ... a rugby team in downing games. We had a great night and wandered home at some time around 4:30am, luckily without breaking our necks on the cobbles. The following morning we were off to Isla Grande with extremely sore heads. Isla Grande is a jewel in Brazil's beach crown, an undeveloped island full of tropical beaches and dense vegetation with what is described as one of the most beautiful beaches around - Lopes Mendes. In the last year we have visited so many beaches ...
