Rio--even the poor have a good view

Wow--its not any surprise that we love Brasil. The amazing thing is that our hostel, in a favela (shanty town) no less, was written about in Newsweek International this week. Congrats to Bob and his family for running a fantastic hotel!!!

An article about our place in Rio de Janeiro--yeah, we´re staying in the same place as Snoop Dogg--we know what´s up ;)

crazy, huh? we´ll post pics as soon as we get home to our camera cord, that I decided to leave in Atlanta. Meanwhile, here´s a pic of the second most famous favela in Rio, (not the one we´re in--I have better pics of that!) This is Rocinho:
