On Thursday the team were taken on a tour of the Copacabana Fortress.
In the evening the group went along with their hosts to the Rio Scenario, one of the most famous bars in Rio. During the daytime it is a popular antiques shop and during the night 7 days a week 365 days a year, there are two live acts playing samba.
Surrounded by attractive dancers, the group couldn’t resist attempting to learn some samba steps and got an important step closer to the Brazilian way of life. They left, este lugar maraviosa, (this wonderful place), with a big smile on their faces, safe in the knowledge that there would be more of this to come.
