I'm coming to the end of what feels like an endless trip.
I started in Dubai and got sick.
I froze in the relentless UK rain and now I've been treated to the wettest week Brazil has had in memory.
I did luck out yesterday as the sun made a short appearance and the temperature soared. Though I felt at times I was melting, I managed to squeeze in an afternoon walking along Ipanema and Copacabana.
