Learn some Portuguese. It saved me a Snoopy Merry Christmas sno ho ho shirt. I had an interest in the language anyway so it was easier for me but it was easier to make friends and get out of some sticky situations. I always chatted to cab drivers and they never short changed me, 2 even gave me their number to use them again. Dont take selfies every 5 minutes or you will get robbed. A lot of people I met got their phones robbed (iphones are very expensive in Brazil and are normally what the theives go for) take a picture by all means. But be sensible and selective when you do it and put your items away afterwards.

Best Snoopy Merry Christmas sno ho ho shirt
I met a few people who had problems with this and Snoopy Merry Christmas sno ho ho shirt, but with a bit of caution, you will be fine. Also at night be aware of prostitutes. I dont know if your male or female but as a young man in bars you will get approached and some of them seem pretty ‘normal’. One night in Ipanema I and a friend couldnt differentiate between hookers and normal party goers. I even offended a local Brazilian by telling her I wasnt interested in paying for services.
See Cristo Redentor in the morning. I arrived at about 0900 and had about 25 minutes of peace to take pictures but after that, it got VERY busy, VERY quickly.
