A few comments remembered from Facebook that I have saved to give a flavour of daily feelings as well as daily events and that ongoing ‘wow! a day’
*Not impressed with Rio today, just another city. Lapa a bit livelier tonight but I was out early. off to see Cristo Redentor tomorrow if I’ve done my ticket right and move hostel in time! Then off to Paraty for a few days nefore back to Sugar Loaf mountain and Copacabana beach before Lima for the last time…and a new creature I’ve never seen before!
*Not sure if I was hungry for a meal tonight, after skyping my friend, but went out after the 5pm downpour I got caught in ( but great to have clean clothes again!) and wandered down to the river for a night view. I found another tent (market yesterday) with food! Lots of families eating, samba/salsa music playing and tried two new things! Spicy sausage sandwich yummy then chicken with fillings also yummy! Dinner for 25 real or £5…with Skol beer inc!!
Lovely day. Next, a long awaited lie- in …but might miss breakfast …!!!
*Noisy night and little sleep last night after the ‘party’! Loud loud music from 3.30am to 6… then vans dropping bottles off at 6.15 am! Found a lovely new hostel, just the fireworks for now again!! Might pop over to the kiosk bar again – met ‘ my friend’ this morning hotel hunting at 8.30 am and I think we sort of said that!
*Wandering the quaint streets, learning the layout…and beach, paddle and beer in Rio de Janeiro, S America this afternoon!!! Who hoo.
*More boats and beaches hopefully tomorrow and beach and city tour maybe last day!! Bring it on!!!
*Today, the charter boats and harbours…
