... our sunset shots, the colours and light was incredible. Also had my first encounter with a marmoset, smallest monkeys in the world and unbelievably cute and curious with faces like a Gremlin. The bus trip on the way back was similar to our Lapa cab-ride, these guys are MAD! You jump on the bus and then they have a ticket dude who you pay and then allows you to go through the turnstile. They never wait til you are through before they launch off again and we saw more than ...

our first stop was Christ the Redeemer. One of the modern wonders of the world, and another one for me to tick off. We got driven to a meeting point where we changed cars into one of the official Tijuca shuttles and got driven to the statue, where we walked up a few steps and were greeted by the big man himself.

... 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 ...

... expensive now so I settled for a salami croissant. Not great, but it was filling. Afterwards, I met an American named Eliseo and a guy from Montreal (practically my neighbor since I've been living an hour and a half away from Montreal for the last 6 years in Burlington,VT) named Luciano, and a Brazilian named Juan. We met up with some of Juan's friends a few blocks away and decided to hit the town and go out in Lapa, a hot spot for night life. I have never seen streets ...
