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 …
The following day was my last in Rio and I had organised a transfer to Ihla Grande. The transport was over an hour late, but I was assured by Luis, our host, that everything was OK. It took us three hours to make it to the small town of Conceição de Jacareí and there I met Chris, Jim and Mark who were waiting for a boat to the island. We were on the same boat and staying at the same hostel on the island so we boarded together and awaited the boat to make the hour long crossing. ...

I don't remember much after this as I decided I'd had enough beer and moved onto a more traditional (and much stronger) drink - cachaca. It's what they make capirinha cocktails out of. There were guys selling it out of big flasks for a quid a go and the plastic cups were almost as big as the beer glasses I'd been drinking from.

Rain :( Today it is raining. Not sprinkles. Not showers. RAIN. Buzzy and I headed to the beach to see Arpoador. This is a rocky area between Copacabana and Ipanema. This is also a big surfing beach. Even in the rain, there were two dozen or more surfers. It sure was fun to watch but they really wipe out ******* their surfboards. We were looking for a place to get out of the rain so ...
... Soon after took what I thought would be a quick stroll up to Lagoa rodrigo de freitas, the lagoon in the middle of Rio before doing some grocery shopping... As I noticed on the ride into Copacabana, the map & reality didn't quite jibe! They have large blocks here, so what looks like a short stroll on the map actually turns out to be a 1/2 hour trek lol Anyway it was worth it! Lagoa is lovely, mountains on all sides bar where it runs parallel to Ipanema. Lots of ducks & ...
