Where I stayed
We then wandered around the city looking at the buildings seeing how old and dirty looking they all are but its good to see how different it is to back home in Australia.
Friday we went up to the top of the mountain overlooking the city to see the Christ the Redeemer statue. Its an amazing site to see the size of this massive (38m) statue and the view it has over the whole city
We then headed up to Sugar loaf mountain which took two gondola trips to get there. This is also another awesome view over the city and its beaches.
The whole city is getting all hyped up for carnival with already massive street parties or blocca's as they call them, going on in the street. The one we are going to tonight is blocking off 10 main streets to fit everyone in. Everyone dresses up and gets drunk in the streets, pretty much like a music festival. So much fun!
