I'm writing it down, just to give you one advice:
DO NOT COME TO RIO, in Brazil.
That's simple: Violence!
Too many shootings and too many victims are suffering for lack of security! Since the beginning of this year (2017) 111 police officers have died while fighting bandits. Yes, one hundred eleven officers have died so far, apart from several victims, including foreigners tourists.
I bet the travel agency you buy tickets from, does not tell you about that, so, as I'm living here in Brazil, I feel myself compelled to tell you this sad true. It's your life at risk; do not waste it.
Poor laws and with the Brazilian Human Rights Watchdog protecting bandits, it's up to you to get out of your country to come to one land where ordinary people do not live in peace.
All Brazil is enduring such a difficult time concerning violence, but in Rio de Janeiro, although all that natural beauty, is totally hostage of criminality.
Take it as an valuable advice.
