Hi All,

The 15 hour journey to Rio was fun, after a temperarly lost passport and a unexpected stop in Sao Paulo we finally got here. About 5 people asked us if we were in the Ireland cricket team, so we lied to them and told them all about the cricket world cup experience. Tilly still hasnt tried fish. We spent the first day at the beach playing rugby against the waves and checking out all the mankinis. We then played some beach football, jack hit the best overhead bicycle shot ever which was slightly over shadowed by tilly´s save... although conor later remembered collie´s overhead last year which he argued was better.


We went the Shenanigans that night and played an epic game of darts and these americans knob jockeys told us everyone was a prostitute... they weren´t. After that we hit Rachels recommendation, Emporium, which was awesome. Derek was drunker than he has ever been, damn caipirinhas! We met 3 beautiful brazilian girls before Derek got sleepy and we put him too bed... after he scored of course.


We got home the next day at 11 am and missed our tour of Rio... but we just got Carlos the taxi man to bring to see all the sights... mainly monkeys having sex and chickens running down the street... there was also a giant statue of a beegee or something, maybe it was jesus.


Killer Fact Time:
The statue of jesus in rio is actually a mosaic piece


Sam our canadaian roomie told us that fact - thanks for that Sam :)

Hugs & Kisses
