Spot the real fly and other important questions?

Day 6 in Rio and our last night in our apartment and my first blog post in Brazil. When I was on the plane I took a few pictures like this one when we were just on the equator. Did you know the water in the Southern Hemisphere goes down the plug hole clockwise? Which way does it go at the equator? Please put your answers in the comments.

We have an apartment in Leblon and just across the road is a supermarket that sells Babybels. How much would these be in pounds?

Hint: That’s the ‘Real’ price

I went to the Jardim Botanico (botanical gardens). The trees were planted 200 years ago by the future King of Portugal. How tall are these trees?

That’s me

I bought a can of Coke and I attracted lots of flies, I was very popular. The question is spot the real fly (my Dad added a few extra)?

Which is the real fly?

I don’t feel very well at the moment but I am getting better. I hope my cold goes soon. Missing everyone lots and wished I was in Brighton today to see the Olympic torch.
