    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.

Anyway the view from the rock down the beach was beautiful, there was a favella (ghetto) on the mountain at the end of the beach which lit up like a bed of jewels, ...

    ... we took the cable car all the way up and waited for the sunset to enjoy the view of the city also at night. In the evening, we went to a 'funky' party with guest singers Ludmilla and Anita. The music seemed very similar to Bulgarian pop folk but I enjoyed the Brazilian version more, because I couldn't understand the lyrics ...

I went to see a samba party in the middle of a plaza/park but it was over by the time I got there so I instead went with the group to Camila´s friend, Claudia´s, apartment. She is an architect with a pretty awesome apartment. We just hung out and drank and listened to music until early in the morning and then I took a cab home and ...

    ... told us 'too dangerous' before driving away. By this point I could't get in contact with Ben so we decided to go to the nearest bar which was a Champagne bar. Favela Party, Champagne Bar...same thing I guess.
