... to where the train goes up to see Christ the Redeemer. A member of staff kindly advised that it was cloudy up there, and you wouldn't see anything apart from the statue.

... our first. It just drove past and we discovered that this service doesn't stop where we were waiting. A local explained that we needed to relocate to the end of the road. At the end of the road, we finally caught it before heading through a series of tunnels to the western part of Rio. The journey itself was swift and, upon disembarking, we followed the people dressed in beachwear towards the sea. The World Tour for surfing runs from February ...

One man's rubbish is another man's treasure

... would consist of a small group, hopefully deterring any would be criminals. The tour was enlightening and fascinating as Rocinha is a city within a city and not once did anyone feel unsafe. We did not venture too far into the favela as that's where drug dealers hang out. One stand out comment was from the tour guide, who lives in the favela and has friends who genuinely can't believe that people pay money to come and visit their slums. One person's rubbish is another one's ...
