15. The uber driver was a funny local who barely spoke a word of English, but tried nonetheless and it made for a quick ride to the airport. He told us that despite living in Rio his whole life he'd never been up to see Christ the Redeemer or Sugarloaf mountain, apparently not uncommon for the locals. Obviously as we checked into our flights we were informed there was a delay of a couple of hours, but not to worry, Emily had airport lounge passes, one final highlight of the trip for me! I couldn't believe how everything was free! Amazing! I smashed down a few plates of food while Emily took advantage of the free shower. By 1am our flight was ready to board, but I didn't want to leave the lounge! Anyway, we eventually got underway, landing in morocco for our connecting flight 10 minutes after it was supposed to take off. What followed was like a scene from a film as the Moroccan airport staff very quickly rounded a few of us up and literally ran us through the airport to the next plane.
