Last step in the trip, Rio...
I was hosted by Ada's family, that had just moved into Copacabana, for two weeks. waking up in the morning, making a smoothie and then dipping into the transparent water of the Atlantic Ocean, ah, that was the best!
Tourism wise, I visited the town centre and its numerous churches,
the Republic Square where the Independence was declared,
you can find there many cats and funny rodents
the very original Metropolitan Cathedral,
Niteroi's Museum of Contemporary Arts,
the tramway to Lapa and Santa Teresa,
the stairs of... err... I forgot! Bad tourist!!
the botanic garden,
and a lot more.
I also got pierced!
But the best was the party! despite an unexisting budget, we had a ball! First, I learnt how to make caipirinha.
Then we went to Casuarina's free gig,
And the feira of something else whose I forgot the name as well. It's a fair celebrating the Nordeste culture.
I thanked Ada's family with, as usual, a TARTIFLETTE! Everybody liked it.
Then it was time to go. Peter and I went back to Europe. Ada and I shared a small tear then we said goodbye...
Once in Paris, I said goodbye to Peter who was heading to London.
Then I took the RER, then the train to Orléans and I realised I loved France!!
One hour on the bus and I walked home.
The Trip is definitely over.
