... bring back and eat before we leave. We wander around the area and end up at a corner juice bar a couple of blocks away. There are close to 50 different fresh juices you can get, along with a number of sandwiches. Its all on Portuguese, so a bit difficult for us to understand, but we clearly understand one item, Eggcheesebacon. Buy three of these and some juices and head back to the apartment, assuming Alex will have showed up by now.
We get back, ...
... to be there, playing football, as the sun set and as the locals warmed up for their Saturday night – truly Rio is a magic place. We both had a quick swim (not too cold – even for June in the middle of winter!!)
That evening we went to an amazing (Agoda Tavola) Portuguese tapas place. It was packed with locals and Spencer did very well with some non 9 year old food (Escapache de Sardines, Lagosta di fume). It ...
... found refuge in a kids playground where we were soon joined by a father and son (Carlos and Brando) and they began a game of marbles (bolo de goodgi) in front of us. It wasn't long before our kids were joining in and learning to play a completely foreign game with the rules being explained entirely in Portuguese! Another great day ending with a family game of soccer on the beach where we even managed to get some ...
... so it had been a long day, we had booked a hotel at the airport this time as we were so arriving late. This avoided us having to travel all the way to the city at daft o'clock in the morning and meant we got some so called sleep. The hotel also had a free shuttle from the airport which was very handy as it was getting quite late. An easy ride back to the hotel but a length check in as it was busy, then off to bed we went. The longest day of our lives, literally, travelling back in ...
... instantly before the drop off the roof. Instead it lighted a frenzy of excitement, wildness and serenity all in one instant. Our tandem instructors dressed us in the appropriate apron like suite and prepped us for the jump by doing a couple practice runs on the flat ground. Hooked on to the gliders, we stepped to the edge of the roof and laid parallel to the ground to ensure the equipment was intact. The only move left to make was run off the roof and soar through ...

Great location if you are into going to the beach but the hotel is in need of an upgrade in the rooms. Very friendly helpful staff, and the lobby was a comfortable place to sit and use the free wifi (Expensive if you want access in your room). Would have preferred free access in the room.
The buffet breakfast was good with a fair selection of food. Everything looked spotlessly clean. One staff member was testing the food checking the temp etc.
Brazil is expensive and for what you got at the hotel it was quite expensive but if you were there for the beach and it was beach weather then it would be a reasonably priced hotel.
