Day 150 - 154: Caipirinha's, bikini's and beaches

A travel blog entry by badman-kirsty


Arriving back in Rio in the early evening we take a taxi to our chosen hostel (Beach House Backpackers in the middle class Botafogo area). Luckily they have space for us for 2 nights and for R$25 each (10) it's a pretty good deal for Rio – about half the price of other hostels.
