Day 1

November 1 (Tuesday)
Place: Rio de Janeiro – Conceição de Jacareí
How to get:
1) By bus. Take a bus from the central bus station Rodoviario Nova. The cheapest and most reliable bus company is Costa Verde Onibus.
2) By Blablacar (
3) By friend’s car – this what we made.

This is my last day in Rio de Janeiro. I’ve been here for 3 months. I came at the end of July to work for Olympic and Paralympic Games. This is my first time in South America. I’m originally from Russia. I’ve been to all the countries in South-East Asia and 38 countries overall.
For the last 1,5 months in Rio I was living with amazing CS host Brazilian girl Simoni. She is a piano teacher and still studying to become a layer. She is renting an old small apartment in Cinelandia. She is fantastic!
There is a Brazilian holiday on Wednesday. On Tuesday evening Simoni’s friends picked us up and we drove to Conceicao de Jacareí. One of the guys Enrice has a house near the pier, so we were staying there over the night.
