Paid a very high price during the World Cup for our stay at this Hotel.
While it is in a reasonable position three blocks back from Copacabana Beach the Hotel is aged. While the staff were very helpful the beds,bedding and towels all needed replacing. Breakfast was just adequate.

Carnaval is a world famous festival held each year before Lent. The “samba school” parades in the Sambadrome (a huge stadium built specifically for Carnaval) are an essential part of the festivities.

He finally gave up and showed me in Brazilian Reals how much the fair would be. I showed him my American dollars, which I was told they would accept, and he held up ten fingers. I handed him my twenty and he looked at me with a disgusted look on his face ...
... Germans shut them up. For me it was the highlight of our travels, possibly my life, to be in such an iconic stadium for the final was indescribable.
(Pictures are to follow of the world cup and sugar loaf as we experience some technical issues!)
Our time in Brazil has flown and we have really really loved it. It was the only place me and Louisa could ever agree on and it definately hasn´t dissapointed.
Next stop Columbia and a whole new adventure.
