      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.

      ... of chicken yakisoba at a street vender, I went back to my hostel to check on my phone and get ready to go out to an authentic Brazilian hangout spot (recommended by the girl Eliseo is staying with). This is when **** got real... I saw Daniel at the hostel. He is the guy who helps people in the poor neighborhoods (favelas) who recommended the trail up to Christ the Redeemer. He confirmed that we would go do some cool stuff the next day for cheap and he would take us ...

      Wake up feeling good this morning. The weather is fantastic (for the 10th day in a row for me, something I could not be more thankful for). We head out to our breakfast stop, we really like to branch-out when we find something good. After eating some food, we decide that today we are going to take it easy and head to Copacabana Beach. Our apartment and the Fan Fest are on the far northeast side of the Beach and we are going to walk all the way ...

      ... the World. The little streets around the area were all preparing for the World Cup putting up the green and gold flags - it looks like its going to be a bloody good party!
      It still wasn't warm enough for the beach so we checked out the Museum of Modern Art - a new exhibition had just opened so it was packed. Squeezing through the crowds we got to see some great, hyper-realistic model sculptures of humans by the British artist Ron Mueck. They were freakily real ...

      Today Anna, Regan and I decided that we were not going to get into a vehicle at all today. This meant off course our feet got a really good work out. We started with a walk the length of Copacabana beach and across to Ipanema beach. This is about 4km and it was already 30degrees with very little shade. Due to that Anna and I were straight into the sea as soon as we reached the beach. It was blissful and the water was so clear. We swam and then lay in the sun and suddenly it ...

      ... won the second groups parade last year so they moved up to the top league. They were all amazing, each school lasted for ages, none of us expected the parades to be that long, thousands of competitors in each school. All the dancers were so in time and so well rehearsed very impressive as they had to repeat it over and over until they had reach the very end of the 800meter runway. The costumes were unreal and the amount of time and effort gone into all the ...
