So after a **** night's sleep - why can't I sleep on the nights I know I have to get up early? Oh well those 2-3 hours is what I had.
We meet in reception shortly after 4, the taxi is booked for 4.15.....It doesn't show up, so nice start to the day, thankfully another is in the car park and we load our selves and bags into the car.
We arrive at the hotel and check in, and get through security, 3 planes take off in the dark and eventually our flight is ...

We did have lots of fun doing this.
Moved downtown to look at a pyramid shaped Catholic Cathedral which is 96m high ...

The final thing we did in Rio aptly was watching the final championship game at ...
