Touch down! After 15 hours of flying we are finally in Rio. Boy its hot! Our first hostel is small but friendly. We are staying in a private room.  Kinda doesnt feel in the spirit of things, us in our ivory tower while everyone else is sharing a dorm.

Breakfast = roll, ham and cheese, fruit, coffee and cake. This is nice. I could get use to this.

Today we went to the Maracana, the home of Brazillian Football, perhaps the world?!  ¨We met at 3 to leave at 3¨. Got some really cool pictures, which we will upload. Flamengo won 5 - 2 and the atmosphere there was amazing! PLUS we got our first wiff of tear gas....

Hello peeps,
Must be good to finally be there. Sounds like your having a great time! Its so bloody cold here. To top that iv busted my knee ligaments at football, so now bandaged up and on crutches. Apparantly the best cure is a trip to rio in the sun.....!!
