    Woke up to the most delicious (buffet) breakfast. Had my absolute fill of tropical fruit - popaya, mango, kiwi and bananas. Left for Copacabana whilst Alex continued to sleep through his botched body clock. Braved the Rio metro and got off near the beach. Walking down, was greeted by noise, samba music and the smell of BBQs on the beach. So many people on the beach and it was only 11o'clock! All shapes and sizes, ...

    ... of Rio. Interesting and fascinating and worth the 1hr 40 min wait to get to the top, and 45min wait to get down! This didn't include the 20min train ride to get up and down! For anyone who complains about 'peak hour' or 'rush hour' traffic, rest assure, there are worse places in the world than England or Oz. You guessed it, Rio is one of them. Transport links here are great. There is the 'Metro' (underground train), over ground trains ...

    Woke up around 8am to go check out a near by favela named Vidigal. We'd heard of a cool bush walk with a view at the top. It is a pacified favela so as far as I know they are a little safer & are monitored by police, still a favela however. We caught a taxi around Ipanema, Leblon & finally to the bottom of Vidigal. The taxi dropped us where we then had to board a Moto taxi, as taxi drivers refuse to travel any further up the hill. 10 Reais each (5NZD) took ...

    Having been in Brazil for 5 days or 15 meals it's clear that vegetables, unless deep fried, are merely a garnish! Steak is the staple. Who am I to complain! Although vegetarians may have a different view. The churrascarias are amazing. All you can eat BBQ meat served at your table on big skewers. When you flip your beer mat from red to green a tsunami of meat lands on your plate! I have never seen so many different cuts and styles of steak. Along with the ...

    ... I have to say that I wasn't really sure what to expect when I got here. The taxi took me up a steep hill with shops, bars and people surrounding me. The first thing that hits you is the noise, whether it's music blaring out or people talking and laughing. There were food stalls selling hot food, drinks, you name it. My first impression was that this was a lively place with lots happening - I loved it! The guy driving the taxi thought I was totally crazy of course, but I'm ...
