we came back to this hostel twice mostly because of the super lovely guys on reception. the guy from london was immense very friendly and helpful. ask him about the local steak restaurant. he was a real joy to chat to, very good at his job. there was also a really helpful chatty guy from brazil who was ace.
when we were there the second time there was also the most life changing banana cake that the cleaners had cooked. delicious! the free breakfasts were really good too.
rooms were ok, quite expensive for what they were though.

We now have some fresh fruit, one of my favorite cheeses (Minas), fresh bread, coffee, wine, and some pasteis. Pasteis are popular finger foods and can be filled with a variety of ...
... so. Ash flared up and got mad at me. I wasn't trying to blame them. It was just one of those hindsight revelations. Anyway we kind of fought. And didn't speak for the rest of the night. Ash and Rach went down to the common room. I packed my bag for tomorrow. When Ash came upstairs I went downstairs and did some last minute research for tomorrow and double checking in terms of our flights etc. when I cam back upstairs at 12.30am to sleep, Rach and Ash were ...
... an hour to take photos and admire the stunning views and, of course, the immense statue itself.
From there it was back to the bus and a drive through the Downtown area. We stopped at the Cathedral, Sao Sebastiano. From the outside this looks like an upside down cone of concrete but inside is another story. There are four beautiful modern stained glass windows, floor to ceiling and modern, but well sculptured statues on the altar. Two side chapels, one to Mary ...
