28th Sep 2016 - 3rd Oct 2016. 5 nights.
42,082km travelled. 10,922km travelled excluding flights.
I flew to Rio with a five hour layover in Santiago. Nice view crossing over the Andes.
The hostel was in Ipanema. It was okay. I was on my own in the room for two of the nights. The time difference with Auckland was 8 hours so struggled to sleep at the right time.
There are two cable cars to get up to the top of the Sugarloaf.
Christ the Redeemer was hiding behind a cloud right up until the morning I was leaving so I was pretty lucky I got to see it.
