Rio is amazing... not sure if it was just the carnival atmosphere, but the streets here are buzzing! Everyone`s wandering about in fancy dress (yippee) and everyone´s out to have an amazing time.

Spent our first full day here at the Christo Redento (the big jesus) which was awesome.

Randomly on our way home, our cabbie was telling us that he lives in the favelas and invited us round for a cuppa. We left having been fed, watered, and with a karaoke cd of him and his wife singing. Random.

We then headed out to one of the block parties which just randonly occur during carnival... a few drinks later and we stumble upon a rooftop club -which to the disappointment of the lads we were with, turned out to be a gay bar!! oops. Partied there until the wee hours, and definitely didn´t feel like getting up the next morning.

Other highlights of Rio were meeting up with our mate matt from chile (although i did over-indulge in the vino, and fell off my chair... not cool), doing a favela tour and going to a football match at the maracena stadium which was awesome.

absolutely love it here...
