Brazil - Rio De Janeiro

The party capital of the world

sunny 33 °C

Well, i´ve been here for almost week now and this place is nothing short of incredible. There is so much to do. i havent had 5 minutes to myself yet. I´ve been up to the Christ the Redeemer statue, hanglided over the beaches of rio, sunbathed on Cocacabana beach, been the maddest street party i will ever go to, seen wild monkeys playing in the trees.... i could go on for ages but i have so much more to do.
I´ve met loads of people, from all over the globe. Although it does have to be said that England does seem to be the main place backpackers come from. I now officially come from London. It makes life a lot easier, if i say England in reply to everyone who askes where you come from then they always (and i mean always) then say ´London?´. So to say i am from London is just easier.
The picture is of me and three aussie lads i´ve met in the hostel. Went to the street party with them last night, 3 of us were pickpocketed. i only lost a disposable camera sits no big loss but Dion had his wallet taken. We didnt let it ruin the night tho, drinking and partying until the early hours. It was one of the best, if not the best night i´ve ever had, was just so crazy. tens of thousands of people crammed into a street.
