Have had an amazing week in Río, Made lots of new friends and contacts from all over including some other Scots. The El Misti Hostel has been fantastic always lots going on. Rio itself is not the prettiest of citys as its a bit of a concrete jungle. But every street especially in Ipanema has large trees which keeps it cool and the birds are louder than the traffic. Rio also has Tijuca National Park, which is the largest urban forest in the world and sustains a large diversity of wildlife.
All the tours have been amazing but The Favela Tour was my highlight, I highly recommend it. When I come back I am planning to work as a Volunteer in the Children’s centre in the Favela.
