Flag of Brazil  , Rio de Janeiro,

40+ degrees at 5:30pm with what feels like 80%(?) humidity.. Welcome to Rio de Janeiro!!

Copacabana Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world. I had a vision of what this amazing stretch of coastline would be like. I was mostly right. The view over the water was AMAZING!!  But all my dieting and exercise (or lazy attempt of) to not be the fatty in a two piece sitting on the beach was totally unnecessary! Our expectations of toned, tanned bodies in g-strings was half right. Lets just say, Simon was disappointed and most of the ladies here are possibly a little too comfortable in their own skin and maybe the VERY little bit of string should be replaced by something not so little?  

Rio is filled with interesting, friendly, amusing and amazing places. Sugar loaf was not short of offering any of the above! We were greeted again with absolutely AMAZING views and We were greeted by a friendly pigeon who decided I was the idiot he was going to poo bomb. It is said that being pooed on by a bird is lucky?! I say screw luck! I would rather rub a Buddhas belly then have a BIG dirty bit of black pigeon poo running down my arm and my clean white t-shirt just as I'm getting on a cable car full of people. I will only ever say this once.Thank god for people with babies! (They carry baby wipes!)

Copacabana Beach - Check
Sugar Loaf Mountain - Check
Hang gliding - Check

Hell yes, we went hang gliding! But only after one company called Simon to heavy (I kept telling fatty to do more cardio) so we book with another company and then canceled the tentative with the first company waited nervously the next morning to be picked up by the second company only to find out the two companies were actually the same company and when we canceled with the first company they took it as a cancelation all together. It all worked out in the end though and I flew like a bird. Sadly there were no dirty little pigeons flying below for me to return the favour I received on Sugar Loaf Mountain..

Unfortunately Christ the Redeemer and THE STREET PARTY IN LAPA (insert triple sad face here) were missed out on due to five banks with two different cards not allowing us to take ANY money out.. Can we sue the banks for spoiling our fun?!?

I leave Rio with some good luck and Simon standing next to saying this is going to be a really shit flight to Mexico...
