    In Rio now. Went to Corcovado yesterday and Maracana today. Seeing the Cristo statue - absolutely amazing experience.

    Went to a beach every day so far, I have to say that I wish I lived here...

    Everybody here is a race car driver. I remember reading somewhere that everybody feels like they are a Senna, but.. shit! it's fucking scary to be on the road here. I was on the bus and it bumped off another bus twice while taking a corner at 40mph. Craziness.

    Capirinha ftw. Gotta love the lemon infused cachaca. A sweet-sour 40% of alcohol. Bringing few bottles with me back to USA for sure. It's amazing that I can go to the beach, get a chair and for $3-4 I can get a drink there. Lotta people smoke weed, you can drink on the street but nobody here seems to be drunk, or at least boozed.

    Tonight going to watch Brazil-Argentina friendly game at some bar. Going to Lapa tomorrow and Friday.

    Anyone from Rio with more suggestions?

When we walked over to Leblon, it felt even safer. I am not affiliated with the site, but I used flathuntersrio.com to book the condo. It was a really nice 2 bedroom condo with sofa bed, and was only $80/night. It was in a secure building with 24 hour security guard.
