    Day 4

    May 28, 2018 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    This morning I tested a cafe which Maira recommended me for breakfast and it was way better than the breakfast in the hostel. Afterwards I went to a place called Cachoeira dos Primatas. This is a short hike (about 30 minutes one-way) close to the city on the bottom of the Corcovado mountain (where the Christ statue is on the top) to a small waterfall. On the way up through a residential area I met Cesar who showed me the way. He stayed at the beginning of the trail and waited for a friend. So I climbed up to the waterfall and the first time since I arrived in Rio I was completely alone although it is not very far away from civilization. I enjoyed the nature around me and after it started to rain a little bit I headed down again. On the way down I met Cesar again, he explained me how to get to Parque Lage. This is a nice park with a colonial style manor in the middle and a great view to the Christ Statue. After a while I made my way back to the hostel. I met Natalia from Argentina and she speaks English, the first one in the hostel. All the other guests are from South America and speak only Spanish or Portuguese. We went to have dinner and after that I had my first Caipirinha since I am in Brazil :-)Read more
