We’ve been going out a lot recently, on Wednesday we went to the samba club in Copacabana, Thursday we stayed up drinking until about 5 in the morning and then Friday we went out to a house party in Santa Teresa. While we were there we met one of our housemates friends who owns a small rooftop cafe overlooking the city and we went back their for a couple more drinks. We sat on the roof while he played his guitar and watched the sunrise of Rio, which doesn’t happen here until about half past 6 in the morning.
After grabbing some food the next day on Friday we left to go see the sunset on Sugarloaf. We left about 3 and got there at about quarter to 5, with the sun setting at 5.40. The queue was absolutely massive and it took us about an hour to buy a ticket for the first gondola but we eventually got there and managed to see the end of the sunset from the top.
