      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.

      ... be run by drug gangs but for the past few years, a special army/police force has cleaned up the streets was not reassuring enough to venture out and do our own thing. For this reason we decided to take an organised excursion to Corcovado.

      Corcovado means ‘Hunchback’ and is the name of the hill on which the Jesus thing, known as Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) stands. Rio is unique in that it is divided in to North and South separated by a ...

      ... a bit like a soft sorbet, and it’s supposed to be quite healthy. Definitely healthier than an ice cream anyway!

      It was a good day in the city, and I’m really glad I got to see the two beaches and more of the city. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll get to cross a couple of other attractions off my list too if I can make it up to Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. Fingers crossed there aren’t any clouds when I wake up ...

      That afternoon, we went for a wander through the Botanical Gardens, an oasis in the city which seemed to be full of locals on home portrait photo shoots. In the evening we ventured to Lapa which is the nightlife hotspot of Rio to an amazing club called the Rio Scenarium which is voted in the Top Ten best clubs in the world to visit. It was like an ...

      ... time since the grand final hasn't been all bad. It just hasn't been quite as exciting as we would have hoped. Being bed/bathroom bound does help to remind you of why you like going to work though. Because getting paid for a sick day is definitely better than paying to stay in a flashy hotel on your sick day. And with that I will sign off. Tomorrow night we fly to New York and spend the day gathering up our snowboard bag and repacking what's left of ...

      ... soon turned into a disaster for the Brazil fans. There was shock and disbelief on the fans' faces, children crying, fans storming off in embarrassment at what their pride and joy were doing on the pitch. It didn’t help that it was absolutely chucking it down with rain, with the clouds threatening to open up a thunderstorm on the depressed fans below. Shortly after there was a flash robbery on the beach, where a big group of criminals look to cause panic ...
