      Rooms are clean and mine had a balcony with a hammock which was great. The bathroom is basic but had all I needed. Nice hot showers. Free caipirinha on arrival. My first night a group of residents had lots of drinks in the hostel bar then "G" who works there took us to a samba club in Leblon. Looking forward to more fun nights during my stay here.

      From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

      A travel blog entry by tholdsworth89 on Jul 15, 2014

      For our final full day in Rio we had arranged to take advantage of the glorious weather by going on a favela tour that promised the best view of the city. This meant an early start, with an 8 o'clock meeting at a hotel on the other side of town. The Botafogo trio arrived first to find that the Sheraton Hotel is as upmarket as it gets and were even …

      ... favela in Rio. This involved winding our way, sometimes with streams of sewage, down the steep alleys between tiny houses stacked on top of each other. Enroute we stopped at a local art gallery and bakery and were entertained by a local samba band (2 boys hitting bins) complete with dancing children. The money received from tourism is put to good work funding a local nursery. Towards the end of the tour we were asked to put our cameras away as we walked past the local mafia members, ...

      Final Flourish

      ... That isn't to say that the Argentines hadn't spread and we were surrounded by them during the final, with only a scattering of Germans in the huge crowd. With my hangover on its way, I just about had chance to digest the fact that I was on the Copacabana beach watching the World Cup final in glorious sunshine. Not something that happens every day. As the two teams played out a fairly entertaining yet nervy match, Matt and I were once again asked for a random photo with a ...

      ... the taxi driver where we want to go. We want to hike up the mountain, not take a bus. He does not seem to understand this and proceeds to drive us to the base of the mountain. We ask a guard if there is where the climb starts, even though I am 100% positive it is not, and he tells us we can walk up, it is just a road all the way up. We had done some research prior to setting out and knew that we had to go to Parque Lage where the trial began. This ...

      We lost internet connection in Ipenema Flat over the weekend. Well, it said it was connected, but we certainly could not get it to respond to anything. Hence, my absence from the blog. This post will be a random catch up to lead up to the next leg of our adventure.

      The same day we toured the cemetery, we took a taxi up the hill through Santa Teresa neighborhood to have an early dinner at a wonderful restaurant called AprazÝvel ...
