|Oh how I hate aeroplanes! A 13 hour flight and no sleep, whilst sitting the whole way next to an alcoholic, who stank and kept drinking from his secret stash! Minging! But we arrived safely in Rio at 9am Wednesday morning (12th) to a beautiful sunny day, very warm and lovely blue skies! Just what we wanted! Our hostel is very basic (our room has no windows!) but the people staying here are really nice. We went to Ipanema beach yesterday (Thurs 13th) with a guy from London and 2 Americans. The beaches are just what we expected, white sand, blue sea and lots of people! Last night was our first proper night here, (the first night we went to bed at 7pm!) and we went to Copacabana with a Brazilian friend of Stacey´s. Then we went to a club in Lapa and salsa-ed the night away! It´s really strange because guys just come and ask you to dance and away you go, and then the next song another guy whisks you away! Lots of fun, but very hot and sweaty. Today is Good Friday so not much is open but apparently there are big celebrations tonight! I´ll keep you updated! Lucy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
