Arrived late on tuesday night, jet lag hit us big time. Excited to see what Rio has in store for us!

We had a great first day in Rio. Were only two minutes walk to the copacabana beach. 31 degrees there at 10 o clock this morning.It was so hot i could only stay on the beach for around 10 minutes until i had to get to the shade, dwaynes fine he used to the heat lol and me with the factor 50 on.  Went
to Maracana stadium for a match between Brazil's two most well known
teams Flamengos and cant think of the other team , fantastic atmosphere at the game. Maracana
was once the world's biggest stadium.flamengon won 2nil in front of there new signing ronaldinho..


We went on a tour with other people from hostel....first to Christ the
redeemer...excellent!! funny drive up to it as quite steep.We saw where
the mud slides happened and destroyed lots of homes. We also visited
Lapa and Santa Treasa, nice little parts of Rio. Have already taken 100
photos today, so much to see, got to calm down.  Had a lovely drive
around Rio. Went to these famous steps in Lapa, all made with tiles,
amazin. U2, Snoop dogg and other artists shot videos ere. There was a
film crew there when climbed the steps. We also visited a gorgeous
cathedral, did not look like one from the outside but inside was
spectacular .Off for quick nap now and out tonight to a party.. were going to seemly the biggest favelas party in south america tonight, if noboby knows what favelas mean look it up , its quite scary..


Woke up with our first hangover , all gone once i jumped into the pool ,but neway the hostel were staying in is amazing "stone of a beach" i found out if you say it fast it means son of a bitch that was after a few beers . we just relaxed down on the beach all day , I was getting some looks on the beach for being so white but i mean that in a good way. This guy comes up talking to dwayne in spanish even though this guy was english, i wonder why. it was hilarious. We cooked two huge steaks with chips as you can see in the photos , dwaynes a good cook as you can see , im good at the cleaning up, dont ask mam that though. We then chilled out on the roof top of our hostel theres a really nice bar there , off we went with a group to lapa , unbelieveable craic that was , everyone is out dancing on the street its and drinking of course every bar was packed ,live music and people samba dancing i am getting the hang off it now .it was a late night.
