I have just been back from my holidays at my homeland (Brazil). Even though it was (a colder than average) winter there, it was still warmer or at least as warm as London. Which is great, as we can only travel that long during the school holidays! So now it's been about 8 years that I virtually have had no summers in my life. But I don't mind.

We've managed to arrive in Rio before heading to my hometown, and got to spend a few days there at a very dear friend's flat (who by the way used to live in London before). We where beyond spoiled there! This is the view we had from our bedroom (waking up to the famous Statue of Christ the Redeemer):

It was a short walk to the nearest beach (Leblon), very close to famous Copacabana and the beautiful Botanical Gardens. We had such a wonderful time there, and I can't wait to be back!!!

Btw our visit coincided with the Pope's, so it was a bit more crowded than usual. In a very peculiar way, as many of them were wearing their religious attires...
