Bloco's & pick-pockets

A travel blog entry by martypritchard

... bloco through sheer exhaustion, so today was the day for my first bloco street party! Excited yet? You bet! So look up the online list of what blocos where, nice small one in the botanical gardens, then massive one after on Copacabana beach! Off I march eventually (still tired from yesterday's walk) heading for the botanical gardens. Some way around Lagao I reach the gardens, walked past music on the way but liked the idea of samba in the gardens so kept going. Pay my entry ...

Lapa night out

A travel blog entry by threemonthsaway


Last night we went to what was described to us as the dogiest, most dangerous area in Rio: Lapa. For sure we would get robbed or pickpocketed there.
