I arrived in Rio early yesterday morning. After a ten hour flight it seems strange I’m only 3 hours behind UK time. I spent the flight next to Astrid, a lovely German lady going on a cruise. She had a giant Louis Vuitton tote bag full of shoes. We had a laugh re watching the famous ‘line up’ scene in Usual Suspects about four times. After a long immigration process I found my luggage and grabbed a cab and drove through the dusty streets, past huge warehouses with carnival costumes poking out. It was cloudy and overcast but it’s very humid and hot. The taxi driver points out the outstretched arms of the of Jesus statue somewhere in between the clouds high on a cliff. The clouds lift and the day gets hotter. I’ve checked in and just acclimatising in a hostel, brings back memories of backpacking years ago.. Very different experience to New York. Here’s some pictures of my area..
