    Decent hotel - good place to arrive in Rio

    Decent, clean hotel with tasty breakfast and friendly staff. Nothing fancy but reasonable value for Rio, and on a busy road so felt safe. It's in Catete which is a good midpoint between the main areas in Rio also, so pretty easy to get most places, and a pleasant walk to sugar loaf.

    Checked out of the hostel at 10am. We were genuinely sad to leave as it's the longest we've stopped anywhere so far so it was starting to feel like a home away from home.

    Caught a Megabus from South Station, due to get us to New York for 3.30. Megabus is excellent value for money if you are ever traveling between cities on the east coast …

    ... with the pace that I set.....okay, he said he was never riding one of those things with me again! It was good fun though, and a good way to spend the day. The programme had changed a little for the final week. Sarah and I were still teaching the 3 year olds every weekday morning (now with the help of Mina who had joined us) but were given another class. Some of the guys taught the older years English in three separate sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. ...

    ... heard of some favelas where it's easy to get lost, but this one was smaller in comparison and many friendly residents helped direct the way.
