I visited Rio a few years back when I went to Brazil for Mike and Anna's wedding, so thought I …

I don't think I really explained the heat enough in my last blog entry. You know when you are wearing a singlet or something, your hair is up in your ponytail, and you realise the tip of ...
... it was an insane sight as the countdown to midnight approached. Our apartment (rented through a friend of a friends inlaws) was one block from the beach, perfect for us to run back to use the bathroom (hundreds of porta-a-potties had super long lines), and grab more beers. Finally at midnight the crowd erupted, champagne flew through the air and several barges anchored offshore simultaneously set ...
