Booty in Brazil

We arrived into Rio yesterday and were instantly impressed. This city is so much more beautiful than we expected. Our apartment is in Copacabana, about 20 metres from the beach so extremely excited to say the least. Temp has been no less than 30 in the day and not too much cooler in the evenings. I am loving it and Simon is still acclimatising (the sweat machine)
We have tried the local beer (Brahma) local food (steak and BBQ Chicken) as well as accustomed to the local speciality of Caiparahna (vodka, tequila, vodka, tequila...and some limes) we have been no less than impressed with all of it.
For beachwear the feeling is that anything goes. It feels like they all have a J-Lo booty but who knows how real they can be :) It really is what you see on TV. Simon has not yet go into his mankini....thankfully. We are still the whitest on the beach but not for too long.

We are now off to Cristo Redendto (?spelling) (massive statue over looking rio) to watch the sunset.

Will post pics soon but it is hard to spend time inside at the moment.

Tish and Simon.
