If you don't like posts full of holiday photos, look away now!
If you've left me a comment over the last couple of weeks that I haven't replied to, it's because I have been on holiday! I spent two and a half weeks visiting friends in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil!
I went up Sugar Loaf Mountain
and to see Jesus
and to Copacabana
and to Ipenema
and to the Teatro Municipal
and to the Escadaria Selaron
and to the Portuguese Library
I went to lots of other places too, Santa Teresa, Petropolis and the Botanical Gardens were my favourites, but they deserve posts of their own.
I had a lovely time visiting my friends and saw lots of lovely things. There were bus strikes and a culture strike while I was there, which meant I missed out on the main museums and historic buildings. We found lots of alternative things to do though, we saw an amazing circus at the theatre (this one, which had a man in a wheelchair in it), saw some of a harp festival and ate in lots of nice vegan friendly places.
I hope you won't mind me sharing some of my adventure here over the next few weeks!
