The sun has set on my time in Brazil, but these memories are undoubtedly going to last a lifetime.
Though the final whistle blew almost six hours ago, Rio is still in party atmosphere. The streets are buzzing, the bars are overflowing, and the traffic is at a standstill. The entire world has watched the action over the last month, and now it seems like the entire population of Brazil is out on the streets celebrating.
I would still be out there with them all were it not for a flight back to the UK in a few hours time- that’s if I can make it to the airport through the carnival outside.
