Rio Carnival tour
Have just realised my life long dream to go to the Carnival in Rio, and it’s truly been totally amazing. A singles tour, and I met some lovely like minded people, all ages and some with limited mobility. We had internet access everywhere we went so was able to send lots of photo shopping home.
We initially flew to Santiago in Chile, lots of sightseeing including wine tasting at a Vineyard. We then drove over the Andes ( lots of hairpin bends !) to an Inca settlement. Mendoza was next, then on to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where we learnt all about Eva Peron. We visited La Boca, a charismatic district, and an artists colony. They even had tango dancers outside the bars and restaurants. A river cruise was next, up the Tigre Delta, seeing a maze of waterways. In the evening we had a dinner and tango show, it was fantastic. Next day we spent at an Argentinian Ranch … horse or carriage riding, lunch with plenty of vino ! Then we were entertained by a Goucho Show with all the horses. After some free time in Buenos Aires, we then went to the Iguazu Falls …. OMG the most beautiful sight ever, right in the middle of the jungle, just so spectacular. It’s right at the meeting point of Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. We then flew down to Rio … l laid on my hotel bed looking out thro my balcony doors, right along Copacabana Beach ! We went up Sugar Loaf Mountain on the Cable car, then had a helicopter flight right over Rio, breathtaking. We also went on a small cog railway thro the jungle up to the Christ the Redeemer Statue. Then the Carnival, truly the “ greatest show on earth” 10pm till 6am. The music, the floats and the costumes just has to be seen to be believed … am running out of adjectives !! On my last day in Rio, I just had to go to Ipanema Beach and dance the salsa on the sand to the Amy Winehouse version of “ the girl from Ipanema” … it just had to be done ! And we drank coconut milk from a coconut ….. I didn’t need the plane to fly home ! I was on such a high ……
