Driving in Rio de Janeiro to Petrópolis

And then we rented a in Rio and I was behind the wheel. Your nerves are tested immediately when you have not really driven much in 8 years and suddenly you have to learn how to drive through 6.3 million people in three lanes of highway with four or five lanes of cars. That is a test...
We got ourselves to Petrópolis, a cobblestone city about two hours from Rio. I broke a lot of traffic rules and I made one way streets work backwards for me when I needed them and no one was coming. Suspecting other cars were honking their horns at me to heed their warnings. I knew what I was navigating myself through.
This was a nice cathedral that we seen there....
