Day 31 - Goodbye Río de Janeiro, Brazil

Because of our flight at 5:50 AM we had to wake up at 1:45 AM to catch our flight. We went to bed at 10 PM after we packed. At 10:55 PM there was a knock at our door and they were bringing around a DVD of the cruise that we had purchased. At 1:10 AM all the lights in the room came on at once. We think it happened all over the ship because we could hear other people in their rooms as well. Finally at 1:45 AM the alarm went off without us getting too much sleep. At 2:20 AM the reception desk called and asked if we were checking out. I told them they could send the bellman for our luggage. We left the ship and another porter came and took our luggage once we were outside the ship to go into the port. A taxi was to be there at 2:45 AM But we were there at 2:30 AM so it had not arrived yet. The Porter called and talked in Portuguese for quite a a while and at 2:45 the taxi showed up. We got into the taxi and there was no one out on the street but our taxi driver must have been going at least 80 miles an hour to get to the airport. We were told to allow 30 to 45 minutes to get to the airport but our driver got us there in 10 minutes.
