After our short time in Rio, our next step was to take an internal Brazilian flight to Foz do Iguazu to visit the Unesco World Heritage site of the Iguazu Falls.
Three days in Rio de Janeiro is probably a bit too short to wander around and immerse oneself in the post Olympic atmosphere. However, we tried our best to see a maximum and enjoy every minute of this first stop of our trip. We take you to the Selaron Steps, Copacaban and Ipanema beaches, a football game, the Corcovado and the Sugar loaf. Hope you enjoy the journey with us.
RIO ! First stop of our long wishing list in South America. Only 3 days, but filled up with lots of visits, stories and discoveries. Continued
Here we are. Going to South America. At first Brazil was not on our list but since the only affordable flights were in direction of Rio we did not really have any other choice. We therefore decided to spend a few days wandering around the streets of Rio de Janeiro and see with our own eyes what we admired on TV during the Games. An surprisingly unforgettable experience !
