A Taste of Rio

Macarena Stadium, Rio, Brazil
It took me a while to like Rio, neither of us were impressed straight away. I’m not really sure what I expected, maybe just more or something. More colour, more music, more Rio
 
The first few days in Rio we searched for something that seemed like the place everyone seems to fall in love with. To us Rio was just a city with some beaches and a big statue on a hill. It didn’t really seem different from anything else we’d seen. 
 
But then, after a couple of days we began to see what the fuss was all about. I’m not sure if it happened when we went out in the Lapa district (an area famed for its nightlife and weekly street parties), when we saw where 30% of Rio’s population lived during a favela tour, or when we watched Brazil vs Chile on Copacabana beach alongside thousands of Brazilians during the nail biting penalties. 
 
Here’s a few of the best bits from our stay in Rio:
Watching France Vs Ecuador at the Maracana
Sunset on Ipanema beach
Joining Brazilians on the beach for their nail biting penalty victory against Chile
World Cup street art

  1. Looks like a nice place. With big places you can get caught up in the hype and then it’s not the same when you get there. It kind of takes a little of the magic away.
