      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.

      ... a while to get through the streets and came across another street party. Then we were hungry so we had a kebab. Then we got to Elishas hostel. They were pretty strict there and didn't even want to let me in to use the toilet. So I did t really want to stay there. It was around 10.30 and I thought I might as well head home as I didn't know where I would stay if I did go out in Lapa. It turned out Elisha didn't go out in Lapa and just stayed and had drinks at the hostel. So it was quite ...

      You have definitely outdone yourself in the crazy, hot and busy departments. Highlights include: Spending New Years Eve on Copacabana beach with 2 million people all wearing white, while watching an amazing 20minute firework show and throwing flowers into the ocean for good luck! Seeing the 38m Christ the Redeemer statue up in the clouds. Cable car up to Sugarloaf mountain made for amazing views of Rio. Checking out the awesome mosaic steps in Saint Teresa. Visiting ...

      ... world all intricately designed into this stairway. We walked up the entire length of the stairs and ended up on a back street with a view down to the downtown area and there before us was the world famous Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian. So that led us to our next destination. We headed down to the Cathedral, and to get there you also pass the white arches which are also a well known landmark. We got to the Cathedral, and immediately it blew me away. It was so different ...

      ... quite a distance out of town so we decided to catch a bus rather than a taxi. We hopped on a bus that was making its way to Copacabana where we were staying. All the boys ended up falling asleep and waking up two hours later still on the bus. We soon found out that it was about another half an hour until we reached Copacabana. Was a perfect yet flukey way to catch up son sleep. First night in Rio ...

      ... and no urbanisation. Copacabana is awesome, but of course traveling makes you appreciate the landscapes you have at home. Especially the beaches we have in Australia. Besides the awesome beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, lie the favelas. Rio is sadly known for their poverty in which around 20% of the population reside in favelas. We were warned before walking through the favelas about the drug dealers armed with guns and not to take a photo of them. I ...
