Our room, 1100 was old, dirty, had stained carpet and was badly in need of repair. One chair in the room and one on the balcony which was covered with paint. The lounge was so loud that you could not sit and talk. There is no sitting area in the lobby though there is a lot of open space. Very customer unfriendly. Best thing in the hotel is the pool. Food was good.

It was a shade unlucky but the day on which I had planed to go to corcavado or Christ the redeemer were thwarted by the weather. I journeyed to the statue but the view was blighted by rain and thick fog. In the evening I enjoyed farewell meal with some of my travelling companions.

... bunch and get a better feel for the city. On the bus ride home, Shauli and I got to talking and I found out he was trying to get his US work visa so that he could find a summer camp to work at next summer. I never thought I'd ever need to use my contacts from sleep away camp again but this situation was perfect. I told him I had some ins since I went to a Jew camp that had lots of Israeli counselors and I could probably help him get a job, or at least out ...
... 5 raess each($2.50 aud) cheap cheap. As Danielle and I strolled to the edge of the beach we sat down on one of stone cement table and chairs and took in the flawless sight that would be our home for the next 2 short weeks. Breath taking. Time stopping. Mesmerising. Tear jerking. Life changing. There only a few ways I can express how it felt to be in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I am lucky....really really lucky. I thought it best to stop past the grocery ...
... at a cafe in the main part of town and walked up through the favela via narrow passageways alongside open sewers until we reached the centre where the teaching took place. The kids there ranged from maybe 7-14 years old but Kristine did a wonderful job in teaching them - a totally different ball game from the pre-school! Coming back we walked further up the favela until we reached the main road, and from there it was just a short walk to our hostel. Good to have seen that side ...
