Where I stayed
The sun has finally came out in Rio and alas its time for us to leave we had already stayed longer than planned in order to have some sunshine time.
Tonight we headed to "the rock" which overlooks Ipanema Beach and is a renowned place to watch the sunset so we grabbed a few beers and headed up, lucky we got there early and got a seat as tons of people kept arriving to gather on this rock, eventually just as the sun set everyone got up and clapped and cheered several times, was really cool. Thanks to the beers though I was absolutely bursting for a pee so it was a fast exit off the rock to get to a toilet haha
Bums, Beaches & Bikkini's
I cant leave Rio and not mention the beach life, more importantly "appropriate beachwear" it has to be said that in my bikkini it looked as if I was almost fully dressed compared to the Brazilian attire
So in true pervert fashion I managed to capture a few shots below as there is no point in just explaining this is there? God only knows what is the secret of some of the girls have here to having these cellulite free perfect backsides!!!!!
We are heading off tomorrow on another mammoth long journey to get back to Bolivia by bus - Brazil has also crippled our already dying budget, if only flights were affordable in these countries - I have new found love for easyjet LOL
Have had an amazing time in Rio and sad that we cant afford to spend more time in Brazil the people have been lovely and the country is beautiful, here's to 2014 when we hopefully can make it here for the world cup :-)
Brazil has been expensive mainly due to the time of year we were here, prices of Rio accommodation at New Year just go through the roof
There was a min stay of 4 nights at all hostels for NY (for carnival its 7) -
So per night it was £116 for 2 of us in a 12 bed dorm for 4 nights
After the 4 days it went down to £26 per night in the 12 bed dorm !!
Cost of a 350ml can of beer at the beach - £1.50
Cost of a 2l botle of water £1.10
Cost to go to a Rodizio (all you can eat meat buffet) - £13 per person
Cost of taxi from Copacabana to the bus station - £15
