Tomorrow’s your last day in Rio De Janeiro. How do you spend it?

I 'd wake up early and hike a trail that I've never hiked before, probably telegrafo's trail, than would spend the whole day at the beach. after that I'd head to Olegario to meet some friends for a beer and since it's the last time and there's no time to waste i'd visit one of my favorite places Lapa.
