My day in Brazil

sunny 26 °C

This is my final day of my world tour and I'll be leaving Peru and head to Brazil. I did some research and saw it will take 9 hours to get from Peru to Brazil so because of that I'm leaving Peru at 3:20 am to maximize my time in Brazil. Once I arrive, I will be staying at the Portobay Rio De Janiero hotel which is $161 but has free WIFI, a pool, and free breakfast. So, once I'm done unpacking, I'm going to go eat the hotels breakfast and then officially start my day in Brazil. Now I'm in Brazil one of the most soccer driven countries so I obviously must watch a Brazil soccer match. Just like the one in Argentina its around 2 hours long and cost $110 and let me tell you something, the fans here are nuts, they are so passionate about soccer it's unreal. The next thing I have to do is visit a famous landmark which is the Christ the Redeemer statue. Standing at 38 meters tall this statue of Christ is a must see when your visiting Brazil. It's time for lunch so I'm going to go to the Confeitario Colombo which was built in the late 1800s and serves Parisian style food mainly deserts with some tea, so that’s exactly what I'm going to get. If you don’t want that the upstairs area in a buffet that has fresh foods to help satisfy your hunger. My lunch was kind of late so that’s probably all I'm going to eat since its hitting evening anytime soon. I'm going to finish my day off in downtown Rio where there are multiple stores, churches to explore and museums here. Downtown is where I can spend some cash on some things that may not be attainable back home. Once done here it's dark out meaning it's time to go back to the hotel and go for a quick swim before its time to sleep. This will be the last destination of my world tour and will be heading back to Canada on the quickest available flight. This tour was quite amazing as I learned a lot and was something I will never forget.
