The first few days!

30° heat, sunshine and blue skies greeted us on our arrival in Rio! We are staying in Copacabana just a couple of blocks from the beach. We checked out the big statue of Christ on the hill - amazing views over the whole of Rio. Today we went on the cable car up the "sugar loaf" (the one where James Bond had a bit of a tussle with Jaws...(not the shark!). It happened to be the day of the red bull air race which is where men in tiny planes whizz round a marked course between giant inflatable things and do loop the loops etc. We are off for happy hour Caiphirinias in a few minutes - 1 USD each :o) - heading off the island of Ihla Grande tomorrow for a few days relaxation on a tropical island. Hoping to do a couple of boat trips and some sea kayaking. Next post in a few days.

Can't wait to see pictures of Brazil. I've never been there.
Have a great time and enjoy those drinks!
