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.

They had warned us, but the girl band fifth harmony was in town playing a show, and they just so happen to be staying at their hotel.

... is embedded in the protests and frustrations of the Brazilian people. It is true that the wealth divide is at the heart of all concerns. And one can only hope that one of the world cup legacies will be increased business, tourism and wealth for the nation and its people. But I learned that some of the frustrations are that wealth, income, infrastructure and investment are all concentrated in Rio, Sao Paolo and generally the cities of the South. The ...
... we literally arrived at the entrance just as they closed the gate! Capacity was full.
There would have been over 60,000 people inside the fan fest alone and about another 100,000 around the Fan Fest, and that doesn't include the people inside the restaurants and bars along Copacabana. All of Rio was on Copacabana, well it felt like it anyway.
Luckily the screen ...
