    ... in the bible.
    The crystal palace is a glasshouse and it is used for special events. The school had permission to be there today for a presentation so pictures were not easy to get. It was so hot inside so I spent most of the time there outside in the shade.

    On our return to Copacabana at 5.00pm due to bad traffic, Geoff and I went for a walk around the shops. There is a huge amount of fog rolling in from the sea and we cannot see anymore ...

    CARNAVAL / Gringos in the ghetto - Part um

    ... and around 5000 dancers, parading either on foot or on one of the many incredible floats. All the costumes are over-the-top, be-sequined and utterly fabulous. At one point a few guys parachuted into the stadium. Mind blown. The whole spectacle was absolutely amazing. If anything is going to kill your samba buzz though, it's rounding the corner on your way home through the favela to see a cop with his pistol drawn. Just as we were getting comfortable in our wee ghetto ...

    ... for partying but we still had a decent time winding down through the streets to samba music pumping from lorries.

    We took the two cable cars up Sugarloaf Mountain where we got a great view of Copacabana beach, the bay area and, way way way in the distance, the Christ Redeemer statue. The setting for the city has to the best we'd ever seen, mountains, beaches, green rolling hills and endless sunshine.

    ... Tour'- seeing Christ the Redeemer, Escadaria Selaron (some tiled steps by some eccentric artist), the main Cathedral and Sugarloaf Mountain as the sun was setting. Also managed to fit in a 'walk' across Copacabana and Ipanema beach, much further than we initially thought but helped by a number of beers along the way. Day two and headed to Rocinha, the largest favela in South America. Probably the most eye opening place we've ever seen. Glad we wore shoes compared ...

    The last of La Paz and Rio.

    ... Copacabana. Rio is so much more developed than anywhere I'd been for months so it was a bit of a shock to see small cafes and pattiseries selling tarts and eclairs etc. Also juice bars are everywhere and so is WiFi which is a luxury after Bolivia. Unfortunately I couldn't find anyone to go out with that night but the next day I met an Argentinian, Jacqueline and an Egyptian, John who I went to see Cristo Redemptor with which was amazing although packed ...
