    Finally arrived in Rio after 33hrs fly time- 38hrs in total. Went straight from airport to training- which was lucky as had bad water retention in feet.

    Am staying this week with an American fighter who is also heavily involved in volunteer movements in Rochina (biggest favela or slum in Rio). It goes right up and over one of the mountains here.
