Rio de Janeiro

A week in Rio de Janeiro is almost over and my final stop will be Colombia. It's been a week with perfect beach weather and a lot of wild parties. I have a few stories but they are all way to crazy to tell you here on the blog..

And even tho I have had time to do all these touristic stuff, you know see the statue of Christ, the viewpoint called sugar loaf and favela tour and so on... I just couldn't be bothered, the beach and the parties have been way more appealing than pretending to enjoy the city in a group of tourists. I do however have pictures of it from distance, hahaha! Enjoy!

Catch you on the flip side!

The park and the tower

the weather is good so the most of the time I spend in the park chilling with the geese, black swans or skating. The evenings is spent in "botecos" some sort of brazilian diner with snacks and beer with friends.
And the other day I went up to one of the viewpoints here in São Paulo. 37th floor and 360 view of this massive city!

São Paulo baby!

so I arrived in Brazil and São Paulo. After a 18 hour buss ride cross the border from Argentina.

First I met up with a friend (Marcelo) of mine that I met 3 years ago in Australia. He has been showing me the city often referred as "the concrete jungle" witch is a perfect name. A city of concrete and graffiti.

We've been long boarding every day so far and I love it! And the other day we met up with Alberto, another friend I know from Australia. It's great having friends around to show you all the cool places in this big big city.

Iguazu falls

So I finally left Buenos Aires. Two months of party, learning Spanish, hanging out with skaters ,meeting wonderful people and just enjoying the vibe of one of the best cities in the world has come to an end.

I took a 18 hour bus ride north to Puerto Iguazu to see the Iguazu waterfalls on the Argentinian side. And woooooow was that amazing! It's just incredible hearing and see the force of the water! I think the pictures just have to do because its impossible describing the feeling of being there.

These vicious little bastards is all over and they will try to steal your food, they will be sneaky and even fight you for your bag of crisps or sandwich..

Pepsi music festival

the day I've been waiting 3 weeks for finally arrived! 2 days of live music at the Pepsi music festival in Buenos Aires! I went with some friends I met in the hostel and we had so much fun. The first day it was raining like crazy so the set was a field of slippery mud but that didn't matter. We saw so many good bands and the atmosphere was incredible. The second day couldn't be better, the sun was shining and the bands really delivered! We saw keiser chiefs, black keys, queens of the Stone Age, pearl jam, Alabama shakes, hot chip, two door cinema club! Both two days was more than I hoped for and I'm so happy I stayed longer in BA for it
