Decide to try and see if we could navigate our way around the city. Caught the bus and metro into the centre of town. We were very lucky to meet several different people who were very helpful. One girl who spoke very good english chatted to us for ages. Said there was to be a protest tonight and that they were expecting 1 million people to attend. Its is over an increase in the transport costs. We caught a bus up to santa teresa looking for the ┬ĘSteps. We walked quite a long way before we found them. We were looking to far up the hill. We then walked down onto the harbouralong to Flemengo.
