The Dois Irmãos hike was one of the key hikes in Rio De Janeiro. It was possibly the best viewpoint of Rio De Janeiro combined with a short but enjoyably challenging hike. It was an hour hike up through rainforest landscape with stunning views at the top. We finished off the hike by walking through the *esqueci nome de favela* local favela on the way back down to have a few well-deserved refreshments. As with other events, we were fortunate enough to have our professor Diogo with us to practice portuguese. Spending time with upbeat and lively Diogo is always a plus on a RioLIVE! event!

Carnival is coming but there are still many things to do in Rio, what about a Carnival Hike? We put two amazing things together, hiking and Carnival. We went to Morro Dois Irmãos with RioLIVE! The day was really hot but it made the view even more beautiful, although being tired, our Portuguese students could walk up the way and have the full view of many different parts of Rio de Janeiro. A good way to spend the afternoon and get ready for Carnival.
