Sam and Angela's Excellent World Adventure travel blog


After a very long and tiring journey we arrived at the Rodiovario (bus terminal) and jumped into a taxi. We must of looked liked stupid gringos as we got ripped off (again - hurrah!!) and got charged triple the price.. Headed to beach at the earliest opportunity to start off our tans - got slightly burnt and Sam ended up with "hamburgler" eyes. Went to a carnival ball, got very drunk and danced all night. Sam had an interesting encounter with a large breasted transvestite which involved having his balls squeezed! Saw Christ the Redeemer (at Corcovado) which was amazing - beautiful views of Rio from above the clouds. Visited the botanical gardens which was slightly dull - lots of trees but not much else! Most days were spent hanging out on the beach playing frizza and trying to keep up a football and the nights were spent boozing with other traveller types! Plenty of swimming, walking the streets taking in the sights of Rio city... Went to see Fatboy Slim with some crazy aussies. Free concert on Flamenco beach - a mere 180,000 people so nothing too big! Set off with said aussies down south to Florianopolis for the next part of our trip............
