First stop Rio de Janiero - July 11th-20th 2012

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

We flew from London Heathrow to Rio on 11.7.12 - Mo Martin Ben Zoe And Lara, a family of 5 embarking on a family gap year adventure.
We spent our first 6 nights staying in a great apartment in Leblon, rented by the friendly Alviro who really helped us settle in and even showed us around the city. We explored beaches, took an exciting cable car up Sugarloaf Mountain for fab views of the bays and city, enjoyed the shared (and chilly) pool at the apartment and the private playground, tried new foods and walked or ran the city streets just soaking up the atmosphere. Waiting to go up the Corcovado mountain on the funicular to visit The amazing Christ the Redeemer was just too long but Alviro took us over half way to a fantastic view point of the statue and the city!
Then we spent 3 nights in an apartment in Copacabana opposite a nice park where we enjoyed the playground, colourful Wednesday market and kids having capoeira lessons in the evenings.
