I had the chance to experience Rio’s Carnival at its fullest… Both the big samba school parades, their rehearsals as well as the street parties, or “blocos”
One of the most famous ones is the Bloco da Favorita in São Conrado. It is one of the most expensive suburbs of Rio, with golf clubs etc.. However it is a well right next to one of the biggest favelas of Rio too.. Favela da Rocinha. I did not manage to take photos of this contrast, but it was crazy…

My best friend Annie came to visit me in London and told me she had one wish: that we drive to the “Edge of the world”, which is as well known officially as Beachy Head… A chalkcliff more than 150m steep…
We managed to get out there together with my friend Thomas, even though it was cloudy, drizzling and just not the perfect day… however when we got there, it cleared up and in the end it was an awesome day..
