7. Rio de Janeiro

Brazil – a country famous for football, capirihinas, carnivals and bums! Just three weeks after I returned from Borneo I repacked my rucksack and left for Rio de Janeiro. I had been to Brazil once before -I travelled some of South America with my friend and house mate at the time Jayde, after we had finished our first year at uni. … More 7. Rio de Janeiro
