... with a glass of the national Brazilian drink - a potent sugar cane alcohol called Cachaca! Quite a punch. Explored the shopping area two blocks from our hotel. Then we went for dinner at a restaurant called 'Marius' which had the funkiest decor. Can't believe we're in Rio. Big day tomorrow.

In an action packed night we then left there to head to Sao Christaval market - a huge outdoors market built into a kind of stadium complex that opens at ...
It's been one heck of a day.
Our flight from Brasilia got us in at 'sparrows' and even after a lengthy taxi ride to our accommodation we are too early to check in.
This is just as well, but more on that later.
