Finding Pushkar’s magic

When I was heading to Pushkar I had pretty high expectations.

Rio de Janeiro: the marvellous city

To only spend three days in Rio de Janeiro is tough. It’s a giant city, with many different neighbourhoods spread out over the hills and between the beaches on the Brazilian coast. Three days is simply not enough but I gave it my best shot at ticking off at least the ‘must-see’ sights without rushing…
