    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.

    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 …

    ... known it was on, I definitely would’ve signed up for it K. That night we went for a walk up to the Ipanema hippie market which is full of local artists exhibiting their talent, and we were immersed in beautiful paintings. After finally giving in to a local Brazilian painter turned salesman we purchased an incredible Picasso-inspired canvas painting of Rio.

    The next adventure is only humerous once looking back on, but at the time was one of the ...

    ... track to follow! Interesting! Well, we followed our guide and he led us right into huge flooded area which was definitely yucky to walk through especially as you couldn’t see what was underfoot, but luckily it was only 6 inches of yuckiness! On our way through the jungle we came across a huge posse of racoons literally running and jumping through the trees - they looked like they were having great fun and I wish we’d been able to sprint through the trees ...

    ... too quick for him to get a photo. The rain held off long enough for us to get down to the bottom of the hill.
    We then went for a Brazilian BBQ for dinner. This was amazing. It was buffet style with many salads and extras. Then they started to bring out the meat. The waiters each had a different cut of meat on long skewers and if you want some, they have really big, sharp knives and cut it on to ...

    ... he thought everyone in the hostel was a bell end aswell but when we go back to the hostel he is bum chums with them all and ends up on a nightout with them, hes a nugget like the rest of them.

After asking where he was from it turns out he lives a 10 minute walk around the corner from sam and pete in sydney, such a small world. Gonna share taxi with him tomorrow cause his flights at 3pm from RIO ...
