TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2007. RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL. I've arrived to a slightly damp Rio. It's a huge city, but most of the action is concentrated along or near the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. I am currently in a hostel with a lot of Israelis in the middle of Copa (Che Lagarto, 28 Reals; $14 dorm). After a late night at a club with Glen, my friend Jeff's law school friend, I returned to the hostel early this morning to find someone sleeping in my bed (Had to wake him up to sort things out--Ahh, the joys of hostel life). I have one more night in the hostel before moving to an apartment I have rented for a week with Jeff, who arrives in Rio on Thursday.
