Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Saturday, November 22, 2008

Touch down! After 15 hours of flying we are finally in Rio. Boy its hot! Our first hostel is small but friendly. We are staying in a private room.  Kinda doesnt feel in the spirit of things, us in our ivory tower while everyone else is sharing a dorm.

Breakfast = roll, ham and cheese, fruit, coffee and cake. This is nice. I could get use to this.

Today we went to the Maracana, the home of Brazillian Football, perhaps the world?!  ¨We met at 3 to leave at 3¨. Got some really cool pictures, which we will upload. Flamengo won 5 - 2 and the atmosphere there was amazing! PLUS we got our first wiff of tear gas....
