The night started slow, snoozing in a hammock and plotting a quiet night to leave me fresh for the arrival of some friends from Beunos Aires the following day. A group from the hostel wondered down to Ipanema beach to check out a beach rave which strangly started before sunset. From the moment we arrived we realised this was going to be a huge show, DJ Tiesto was due on stage and upwards of 100,000 ravers had packed the beach. It was superb, the music brilliant, the atmosphere amazing.
From that brilliant start the night went all shades of pear..
As you can imagine today has been a lot better day than yesterday! The arrival of Mads, Romy and Nat, amigas from Beunos Aires has definately bought a smile to my face. After an understandably quiet one last night, curled up watching a few DVDs, the plan today is to try and get any rays the sun manages to squeeze through the clouds here in Rio and have a big one tonight.
