After over 24 hours of travel and very (and I mean very) little sleep from any of us we touched down in rio. The kids did so well on the plane with just a few tears from Ella when she realised Santiago was just a two hour stopover and not our final destination :( We jumped in a taxi (all 5 squeezed into seats for only four) and headed for our hotel …
Oi guys how you doing? I got to see the Cristo AKA Jesus and the Great Brazilian football stadium(from a distance)
I also got the opotunity to play football Brazilian style and today i'm going to Sugar Loaf Mountains(Pao De Acucar)
... city of Rio from the ocean. Most people take a gondola to the top but Jefferson told us that you can hike half way up, so we opted for the hike to build character. He accompanied us along the slippery trail which took out quite a few tourists. But it was all worth it when we saw the views at the top. You can see the ocean and Rio with the Christ the Redeemer statue looking over the city. Pretty epic. After Sugarloaf we went straight to Copacabana beach for "FIFA Fun ...
... rainforest, packed with monkeys and gorgeous birds. The view from the top is just wonderful. The amount of tourists at the top is pretty incredible and to find space to take a photo took a bit of effort.

... on stone buildings all lining cobble stone streets, twisting and turning up the steep hill like a game of chutes and ladders. Sorry, that I don't have better photos, but the taxi cabs here all have very tented windows.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Mercure Leblon Rio de Janeiro
We chose to stay in Leblon as we wanted to get away from the major tourist centre in Copacabana. The apartments were very good, well maintained with a rooftop pool.
The surrounding area had some good food places (which were all relatively expensive, but that's Rio). One of the best was a bistro-type place just around the corner - good food and only about $30/head.
Views from the rooftop were excellent and access to the beach was about a 5 min walk straight down the road at the front of the hotel.
All in all, highly recommended.
