A week in Rio - Day 1

Last week I went to Rio de Janeiro for carnival holiday vacations. I was very excited for the trip. Also Haruhi, Lynette and Kagami who joined me in my adventure.

My arrival at the airport for my connection flight.

Yeay, Gate 25 with final destination Rio de Janeiro.

Total flight time from Guatemala to Rio was 10 hours.

Airline food during flight was good but dont you think they always serve too few snacks and drinks?

Customs area in International Airport of Rio. The original name for the airport is Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport but it is popularly known by its original name Galeão International Airport.

Since I arrived at 2:00 am I had to make some time in the airport until 6:00am to get a taxi transfer to my hostel.

I thought I was the only one who would need to wait but there were others who decided to take a nap in the airport although it is forbidden but a very usual thing for early flights.

Once in Rio, the first thing I did after checkin in the hostel was to go to a "Bloco", a street carnival, in Ipanema beach.

As you can see, there was a lot of people. It was hard for me to walk around with my dSLR and take pictures.

Locals are called "Cariocas" and are very festive and friendly people. Also the girls are very beautiful, dont you think?

If you are in a hurry and need condoms these two guys will help you.

Want to see more pictures? there are more at my flickr set.
