    Think twice - do you really want to join an organised bus trip? If yes, then these guys (see picture) will be after you.
    Anyway, you don't have to buy the DVD/Video afterwards ...

    About Brazilian girls

    A lot of tourists come to Brazil thinking all the girls are "easy-going" and walk dancing samba and naked on the streets. It isn't true and frequently results in desagradable situatons like prison.

    Rio is often described as a violent and dangerous city. But this is no worse than other big cities. Take your precautions here, and in the rest of Brazil, as you always should when travelling.

    Don't carry too much money with you. Don't take expensive belongings to the beach. Try not to look like a tourist.

    Rio isnt as dangerous as one might like to think.
    If you are aware of where you are and dont wave wads of cash and cameras around you will be fine - most people are friendly and helpful.

    Brazil: It was a great experience for me because i was with my husband to a professional course for two weeks organised very well and all the brazilian experience was very well planned, except the last day.
    It was the only date when we left to the airport alone in a taxi, not with the group, everybody having different flight schedule.
    We were on the highway in daylight at 18 pm at not more then 10 minutes to the airport when a car with two 16 years old favelas guys with guns stopped the taxi, threatened us and taking all they could take in 40 seconds, including our money, credit cards and passports!
    We had the worst two days until we managed to solve our provisional living tickets from Brazil, but we had great help from the course organiser, otherwise we would have been in a really bad place because our embassy wasn't in sao paulo, where everything happened, but in rio, and without money, credit card and passport...i don't want to know.
    So, Brazil, is dangerous, no mater what you say.
    It is a country of contrasts with beautiful and great people and places, but with lots of favelas and dangerous people and places.
    It is just a story that must help you to be more careful than us when you will visit Brazil.
    Everybody told us that we were lucky they didn't shot us.
