Friday spent most of the day just wandering around Copacabana beach and such things as the girls were shattered from the trip - out in Lapa for the evening, wandering around the street bars and listening to samba :)
Saturday - well of course, as we had planned to go visit Cristo Redentor, it rained all day long..... So, we didnt let it stop us!! And we actually had an amazing time, the statue is incredible. Obviously the girls would have liked it better if they had been able to see any of the apparently amazing views from it but ok - just an incentive to come and visit again right?!
Out in Lapa again in the evening to a club/bar - 40 grada - awesome night out with Brunna, lud and some of the lads who do their internship in Rio not in Vassouras.
I cannot describe in words how amazing Rio really is - you HAVE to experience it for yourselves - the colours, the atmosphere, the weather, the beaches, the people, the food, the beer, the cachaca, EVERYTHING!!! Cannot recommend it more!
Next visit I will make sure i am here for Carnaval - I am sure it would be the party of my life!!!
