Rio was just way tooooo $$$$$! Last night was $96 US! Moving on after a short walk tour of downtown center. Arr in nite, not our fav time but no other way we see to stop leaking big bucks, ha!
Well, plans change...always! We took too long seeing sights plus want to go down the coast in daylight so staying another night at Bonita Hostel, this time in dorm where we meet 2 young couples traveling...one from SLCity, UT...just finished school, no jobs, decide travel around world is best plan for next 10 mos! Other couple from Ireland, guy in construction & no work, gal wkg for J & J office moved to London she didn't want to move! That was 7 mos ago, now out of $$$ so applied on line for N Z visa&got it for a yr to work in country (Commonwealth works!).
Saw a bit of Rio, old town, colonial stuff. They have a great Metro system and since we're over 65 it's FREE! Yes! Finally a break in cost of something! See pics. (sometime!)
