Spent our first full day here at the Christo Redento (the big jesus) which was awesome.
Randomly on our way home, our cabbie was telling us that he lives in the favelas and invited us round for a cuppa. We left having been fed, watered, and with a karaoke cd of him and his wife singing. Random.
We then headed out to one of the block parties which just randonly occur during carnival... a few drinks later and we stumble upon a rooftop club -which to the disappointment of the lads we were with, turned out to be a gay bar!! oops. Partied there until the wee hours, and definitely didn´t feel like getting up the next morning.
Other highlights of Rio were meeting up with our mate matt from chile
absolutely love it here...
