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 …

Finally at midnight the crowd erupted, champagne flew through the air and several barges anchored offshore simultaneously set ...
... asked some people what one of the chants were that everyone was singing and they said it translated too "1000 goals, 1000 goals, Pele is the greatest, Maradona sniffing". We learnt that there is beef between Brazil and Argentina as they fight between who is better out of Pele and Maradona. Apparently all Maradona does now is party. The whole city and beach was engulfed in people partying. Beachside bars were starting to shut their doors so we decided to have a little sit ...
... the cheers of the crowd already inside which made my heart skip a beat. Wow this was it, I was about to be a spectator for a World Cup game (deep breathe). We went through security again, scanned our tickets and made our way up the ramp to gate 130 which is first elevation, We were close. Danielle had pee. We checked out a few more of the official fifa stores to see if they had the jerseys, they didnt. So we got another round of beers which meant more cups for me to bring home ...
