So my flight from New York was delayed by three hours. But it didn't bother me too much since I'm not in a hurry! Luckily my host Ana Luiza (http://www.couchsurfing.com/people/analuh) was still waiting for me at the airport. She dropped me off and went to work. It was raining pretty hard so I just hung out at her apartment for a few hours before heading to the weekly couch surfing meeting, about 2 block away from her home. There must have been about 100 people there so I was able to meet a bunch of locals and also some travelers. I was amazed at how cheap the beer was (About $2 for a 600 mL bottle), although its not really the greatest beer in the world...

Today (Friday) I went with Stefano, an Italian guy whom I met at the CS meeting last night to Sugar Loaf (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%A3o_de_A%C3%A7ucar). We hiked up about 45 minutes to the lower peak and then took the cable car up the rest of the way. The view was pretty amazing and we stayed up there for a while. After grabbing lunch we parted ways and I walked around Copacabana a bit before heading home. Tonight the weekend starts!
