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.

The Boeing 777 took about 13.5hrs to cross the Arabian peninsula, the African plains and the vast Atlantic Ocean before skirting the coastline of eastern Brazil and landing at Rio de Janeiro.

A very boring game which ended in penalties and some very happy Argentinians. Many tears were shed. We took that as our cue to leave and headed back to the apartment for some sausage pasta and to chill after a long day. We were up and out early ...
... planned trip the following day to Mount Sugar Loaf a miss mainly due to the fact that both Barbara and I have picked up a dose of bronchitis that we just don't seem to be able to shake off.
After saying good by to our friends from the Football Tour we had to change hotels for our last five nights in Rio, after what has been a very busy few weeks the plan was to take it easy and enjoy the atmosphere of the World ...
... a fantasy novel,
Refreshed with beer we stopped off quickly to meet one of Livia's friends at Ipanema beach (the best Rio beach she claims - I'd agree) and then drank coconut water straight from the freshly machete'd coconut. This is actually the official antidote to dehydration in my book and I will be guzzling at every opportunity from now on.
Next was an hour long drive through the heavy traffic towards the north of Rio where ...
