Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,

Spent the day walking the beaches.

Itīs a bit crazy how many beaches they have here.
The beaches are nice though and since itīs SO FREAKING HOT here they serve as a social meeting place. Given that Rio has so many inhabitants itīs not illogical to keep adding beaches.

Walking all the beaches took me most of the afternoon.
I had bought some havanianas (flip-flops) and they had utterly destroyed my feet.
The piece of skin between my big toe and the one to the left on my left foot just got ripped off.
Bought some bandaids and tried to apply it in a proper way. It seems to be failing. It hurts alot.

While back in the hostel applying my improv first-aid ran in to the couple from Sweden I had met yesterday evening and we agreed to visit Christo the day after without a guide.

Went to the internet cafe and communicated with the parents and my sister. It felt good to see them and they were happy that I arrived in Rio safely.

I ended up having dinner in a cafe in copa cabana. There appeared to be many beautiful girls hanging around there which might have influenced my choice. Met two guys there and we got talking. They were apparently both chefs on a yacht. Each of them on their own, belonging to the same guy from the Ukrain. The one guy was chef on the main boat and the other guy on the 'entertainment boat'. Only in Rio....

After a while it got to be clear why there were so many beautiful girls there as they started mixing with the male crowd on the terrace ^^. The two guys had to get back to their boats as they were ordered to be in by 23.30. I stayed a while and made my way home by taxi soon after ;-)

All in all not a bad day in sweaty sunny Rio.
