    Giving back

    Hi all,

    I am back from Rio, would love to share my experience of the mongering scene. Hope it helps non Portuguese speaking first time solo travelers (Gringos) to the city.

    You will need to set up the following things to start your exploration:

    1) Cash.

    2) Mobile Sim.

    3) Translator.

    4) Transportation around the city.

    5) Homework.

    Cash:

    Dollars are not accepted. Make sure you exchange your dollars at any of the available "Caixa". If coming in through Santos Dumont airport, there is one in the basement of the Bossa Nova mall that offers decent exchange rate. Try not to exchange at the hotel reception as they charge exorbitantly.

    If using the ATM beware of the withdrawal limits. I believe Itau has a 750 Real limit (at least I was not allowed to withdraw more). Bradesco has a 2500 limit so that should suffice.

    You will find many ATM's across Centro. Just beware of your surroundings while withdrawing cash particularly during desolate hours.

    Try not to use your card at the Termas as I heard a old British geezer arguing at the counter that fraudulent transactions have been done from his card.

    Mobile Sim.

    There are many cellular operators store across the city. There is a "Vivo" store between the Candelaria and Sete de Setembre stations of VLT in the centro area. You will need your original Passport while applying for the SIM. Folks at the store were really helpful and got my SIM activated as well. I got the 600 MB + xx talk time for 37 real including all charges. Maybe you can get a better deal, but I didn't search for any.

    Translator.

    Once you have an internet pack enabled on your cell, you can roam the city like a boss. Most of the girls can barely speak English let alone understand a thick accent. So Google translator is there to rescue.

    Transportation.

    - Well that depends on where you are staying to begin with. Now though I have a conservative bias towards safety I stayed at hotel Atlantico Copacabana. Advantage is that it is very well connected. The Rua Siqueira Campos metro station is right across the street. Also it is a girl friendly hotel, just ensure you book a room for two and the girl has an ID card. The breakfast is also very good and gives you all the energy you would need for the hard work **wink wink** during the day.

    Cons is that the hotel needs a revamp badly. I guess it is still running because of some iconic status maybe. I found it to be very popular with the locals. Also, the walls were very thin and you could practically hear someone fart in the next room.

    Pro tip: Get a Rio Unico Carioca card at any of the VLT stations that will allow you access to both VLT network as well as Metro.

    Most of the places of interest is in Centro so here is how to get there.

    If staying at Atlantico Copacabana, take a metro from Siqueira Campos to the Carioca station. Exit on the side of Av. Rio Branco and you will find it easy to navigate there.

    In my next post, I will detail the places I visited. Feel free to ask any question and I will try and cover them in the next post.

    Oops! Strange things happen.

    Well, US do really have some big changes ahead. This Scandinavian airline Norwegian will change the industry as you know it. The changes have already started, but this is just the begging. I would recommend you to follow the upcoming airlines like Norwegian and get the changes first hand. If you look in the media (specially in US) you will see that the US airlines and the trade unions use every chance to stop those changes (and as you guys have experienced) for a reason. They are way to expensive.

    Chico.

    I've only traveled to Brazil from Canada or Europe to Rio de Janeiro. I've only used Canada airlines, TAP Portugal, KLM, Delta airlines, and American airlines for this destination.

    The tickets keep rising in the USA.

    Sorry, for interrupting the Ticket-thread with a privê-report.

    Today I checked out Angels, Danys, Stellas and a bunch of other privées. I ended up again at Espaço Mente Corpo today. Good selection. Today I went for chocolate. Paloma, morena escura, 23 years, small nice firm tits (even though one kid), strong academia legs and a medium-sized superfirm round bubblebutt. Posed happily for photos. Excellent BBBJ and performed superb. R$100/30 minutes. As mentioned before, I would love to session with receptionist who has a fantastic body but unfortunately she only works in the reception.

    Now all you guys who are back home, feel free to continue posting crying posts about ticketprices you can't afford.

    If you are a no-show on the first flight. You will find that the remainder of your trip is canceled.

    If you think you are smart and cancel that first part. The airline will charge you extra for the privilege of only using the second part.extra

    I am a travel agent for 30 years and have been following the airlines turning into fare Nazis and control Nazis this entire time. And they are getting away with it (high donations to members of Congress, maybe?

I don't pay over 500 dollars. It is very crazy many people that are on the same plane that travel from an american destination pay three times as much as I do.

    Tickets are not expensive, the taxes make tickets expensive. Every country has different prices when you travel.

    I now understand why European people travel a lot because it is so cheap to buy their tickets ex I bought a return ticket from Amsterdam to Rio de Janeiro (480 dollars) and then bought another return ticket via Turkish Airlines from Amsterdam to Tokyo (430 dollars) and bought another return ticket (450 dollars from Amsterdam to Rio de Janeiro for my next trip to Rio de Janeiro).

    P.S: I am now in Tokyo, I will use my return ticket.

    If you check the same dates from Canada to Brazil and The USA to Brazil) you will see the tickets from the USA is more expensive, but the Canadian tickets are also expensive but not as much as in the USA.

    The rates showed below were checked yesterday.

    I have been checking flights often but prices continue high. I paid $760 last time I went and that's what I'm looking for again. But they're mostly over $1400. It was a daily flight from toronto to rio. Air Canada canceled it a few months after.

    A roundtrip from JFK to GIG from March 27 - April 18 is $1757 on AA Flight 973.

    A roundtrip from DCA to JFK to GIG (via Flight 973) on the same dates is $1096. Three weeks ago when I bought my ticket the price was $844.

    In other words, the same flight from JFK to GIG is $700 cheaper if you add another flight! Crazy!
    That is because one is direct and one makes stops. You can always get a cheaper flight if your willing to make stops.

    Lots of affiliation and alliance type deals between many airlines have helped manipulate fares in many areas. It sucks. Just got to deal with it.

    I went to Espaço Mente Corpo today. At 10 AM 8 girls were present. There are 20 girls working so some of the girls will end up paying the R$300 fine for not showing up. I was hoping to find a black bubblebutt-lady I saw at my last visit, but she doesn't work there anymore.

    I chose Babi. Morena clara, 22 years, beautiful face, OK tits (1 kid) and a OK ass. I was really expecting more of her body, but clothes can fool sometimes. She's only been working as a GP a short time so she performed very GFE without hardcore acting. Great BBBJ, strong p*ssy and a nice clean room with shower cabin. R$100/30 min.

    Side-note: I passed by Dolce Vita this morning at 5.30 AM. There were police cars and an ambulance and a lot of upset people. As I was running I didn't stop to check out what happened.

    Some examples.

    From May 5th to May 15th 770 dollars via air Canada.

    From May 15 to June 15th via Avianca 880 dollars.

    From June 10 to July 10 via air Canada 860 dollars.

    Someone's trying to ruin the tourism even further in BR!

    Hell yeah DR is dirt cheap in comparison to BR and to CR.
    From Amsterdam to Rio I bought my ticket 480 dollars via Delta airlines, I have just bought another ticket via delta airlines for 450 dollars.

    P.S. I am not from Holland but I often use their airport to go from a destination to another and buy a return ticket to Amsterdam so that I can book my other destination when I am there. You can find cheap tickets in Holland and even in Germany but it is more interesting in Holland.
