      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.

      ... and by the time we arrived (as our tour had started an hour late), we only had about 30 minutes to spend at the statue. There was an elevator that took us close to the top and then we climbed a few more stairs to finally stand at it's base. Unfortunately, this was not the picture perfect sunny day that you see in all of the pictures. Instead, we had to wait until the clouds passed to quickly get a good shot of the statue. The views from the lookout points ...

      ... good reason I guess. We got to lapa and walked around the markets that were set up in the main square before we decided to go to the lapa steps. Its typically kind of dangerous at night but we had a big group.

      We bought a lot of beers on the street. Why I love Brazil. We got some food had more beers and at some point in the night Patrick somehow disappeared. We looked for him but saw no signs so we gave up. Shortly afterwards, tim and kirsty left and Sam ...

      ... just flop it out and **** on the street. Hey, when you gotta go you gotta go, I get that. We took the typical photo in front of the Lapa sign and went to the bar which was famous for its Caiprinhas (the national drink of Brazil) and this other spicy ginger drink. We got there and boy oh boy it was interesting. It was a small dingy place with hundreds and hundreds of people standing in front of it, We made our way to the bar and had a first go at the ginger drink ...

      ... before the beginning so they are obviously struggling to get things built before the Cup.

      All that said Rio was awesome! And there is a lot of World Cup Fever.

      As soon as we got off the plane we walked onto a mat that looked like a football (soccer) pitch. The bag carousel was football themed and so ...

      ... with the Pheonix Girls I understood how to throw it a bit better!! But I was still terrible compared to the yanks. I then saw two locals juggling by the water and so joined in there for a bit too. Making more friends really. Finally we started to walk back from Ipanema. On the way we saw a commercial being shot, and a couple demonstrating the expression of "get a room." Jess made an amazing discovery with a local burger place that did... Wait for it... BACON!!!! Oh bacon, how ...
