shoe shopping is the best experience in the world for Patrick- especially when he sees the big smile light up his girlfriend's beautiful face when she finds the right pair.

Jaja The grapes are not for de dessert , in colombia thre is the tradicion of eating grapes for news years. You eat one gropue after asking one with for each month of the year.... I have read all your blog, and it seems you have lots of cr
itics. Just a respectfull recommenation, if you travel to a new country with oppsote cultures, you should be more respectfull and open minded. Hope besides all your trouble in colombia, wish you spend a nice trip.Really sorry for my english I Know its very crapy, but i wanted to clarify the mistake.

Hi there! Great post - always interesting to read insights on new cities and experiences :)
9th April 2011

as somebody who lives in Rocinha, much of the information you posted here ius either exagerrated or wrong..water is NOT stolen but provided by the city as there is a watewr pumping station at the top of the hill. Also electricity is paid by
80 percent of the people. I do receive a light bill. There is a huge electricity grid right next to the cable tv station at the bottom of the hill. Maybe if your guide lived here they would have accurate information. I always recommend that if you are to takle a tour..go with somebody who lives here in the favela. The company you went with "Be a Local"...none of them are from or reside in the favela.And contrary to what they say, you could walk in here without a guide with no problems, just two words of advice...stay on the main street so you dont get lost and dont bring your there are places where you can not take fotos..they only tell you this so you will "need" to book a tour with them...the fault is not your own but to the wrong information given to want to read about favela life from a local? go here: thank you for reading..

It's definitely not as cheap as other South American countries. In some cases, Brazil is as expensive as some of the cheaper European countries.

I was planning a trip to Brazil to Ipanema but the flight and ended up being a little too long plus bluegreen corporation does have resorts in Ipanema. I also heard STD's were really bad. better safe than sorry.

Love the watch story! I lived in the northeast of Brasil many years ago and on a trip down to Salvador, I was sitting by the open window of a bus and my sunglasses (super-cheap ones!) were stolen off my face through the windwo while the bu
s was oving! You have to hand it to some of those thieves, they are good at what they do!
