      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 …

I said cheerio to Anna Liza and Tony who had kindly put me up for my last couple of nights in London, and set off super early to take advantage of my first ever Business Class flight (free upgrade with British Airways Avios) ........ It was amazing, I don't understand why people …

      Day 1: Rio de Janeiro

      I woke up raring to go - a great nights kip, and with only 3 hours time difference to London, no jet lag. Didn't really think what to do, just walked out with money, camera and phrase book, the adventure starts!

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

      ... it was just the machine and nothing to do with my card, I took some items off and paid cash (not disclosing how much I spent there!). It was (again) balls hot and I just wanted to get back to my hostel to get some relief in their air conditioned reception area, and I was parched.

      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 ...
