Rio, Day 1

With no early morning tea Christine was gasping so down to breakfast at a reasonable time; no Cruise Liner Breakfast available here, back to normal.

Thanks to Christine not sorting her self out, I now have a stinker, sore throat and cough so planned an easy day. So after breakfast went over to the beach and had a swim, even at this time it was quite crowded, still it was very nice, did our coughs and colds a power of good I’m sure!!!

We were due to meet up with our friends for a late lunch today, but they didn’t answer our e mail about where to meet etc., we thought that perhaps they had a better thing to do but then our room ‘phone went; it was David come to talk about lunch etc. Apparently Christina had been trying to reply to our e mail, in fact tearing her hair out so David came in search of us, firstly to the two other “W” hotels in the area, still third time lucky!! The long and short of it is we are meeting tomorrow after which they can get cab to the airport as they are flying home. We then went out for a stroll around the local

We had another early night in the hope of throwing off our cough and splutters before the morning.
