    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.

    ... letting us play on the field. Crazy times! 4. Reheating chicken and rice- aka THE BIGGEST CULINARY COVER UP IN HISTORY. While sat at the beach in Trindade, Emma said that she would love to eat the leftover rice, warmed up in the microwave with melted cheese on the top. My ears pricked up and I challenged her. I had always been taught that warming up rice was more dangerous than reheating chicken, that both should be done at no cost and eating one of these rewarmed food items ...

    ... I approach three very intimidating looking (a machine gun will do that) policewomen, who again try to find a taxi driver for me. Finally, a third one knows the address. We drive through an area that can only be described as a slum, getting filthier and more dangerous the further we drove into its web of tiny streets - groups of people gathered around street food barbecues, a disgusting smell of sewerage from the canals and derelict buildings. I'm right in the heart of a ...

    Dissapointment, Surprise, & Partial Redemption

    ... down. We were then blessed, said a few Hosannas, and service ended. As we walked out of the chapel, Mauro pipes in with, "Well, you said you wanted to attend a church service. There you go!" There you go. Life is full of surprises.

    Our partial redemption of the day was a trip to visit the Real Gabinete Portugues De Leitura (Royal Cabinet Portuguese of Reading). Right, it's a mouthful. Basically, it translates in to a ...

    ... of acai. Everything was good. Our room was then ready. I'm really impressed with this hotel but I'll tell you more about it another day. We then went to Copacabana beach which is only a block from us. Copacabana beach is gorgeous. The sand is a super fine white sand that feels so good to walk barefoot in. We rented chairs and an umbrella. The water was ice cold. I only dipped my feet in but Buzzy went in up to her thighs. There were large waves rolling in with a strong pull ...

    ... hit the Sambadrome; the venue for parades, where different samba schools (each with about 4000 participants) dance their way down the route, along with their beautiful, colourful floats, as the crowd dance and sing along with them. Being in sector 13, we were in the end section, which was also the largest with 10000 people in it, where we could see the parade passing the 'finishing line' and all the dancers subsequently discarding their elaborate costumes. The whole night was ...
