Travellers from The Mango Tree Hostel

Travellers from The Mango Tree Hostel

Checked into the Mango Tree Hostel in Ipanema. Another great recommendation from my personal travel advisor back home, Andy Peck. I wasn't long before I'd met up with a bunch of fellow travellers including Robbie and Carol who I'd met some weeks previously in Patagonia.

A large group of us (James and Corinna, a crazy Belgium and his Dutch girlfriend, and Asif, London) went to eat at an "Eat As Much As You Like" Brazilian BBQ/restaurant, where I ate so much I had roll out. After a relatively solitary day the people at The Mango Tree soon changed that.
After a few drinks at Shenanigan´s Irish Bar (ok not very Brazilian I know) I was off to Zero-Zero with Line and Malene (Norway), Holly (Barnes, London) and some Israeli guys. A good night although no one knew that Sunday night was gay night.
