Leonard Hatred in RIO DE JANEIRO
Within ten minutes of getting out of the airport, I'm in a cab and the driver tells me to shut the window because it's dangerous, just as gunshots ring out a few streets away.


Am now having a cerveja in a shithole bar next to my hotel.

So far this place reeks of danger.

You should be quite safe if you stay away from the favelas. If you go on a guided tour of them it should be safe too because the guides are locals but do what they tell you to do.. La Garotta di Ipamema is a nice bar/restaurant where they wrote the Girl from Ipanema.

Football is quite cheap at the Maracana. You must go up the Sugar Loaf and the the big statue of JC for the views. The thing I enjoyed most was hanging on to the side of the trams which pass over the Arcos to Sta Teresa. There are also race meetings in Gavea. and another good thing to do is a helicopter ride. It's spectacular. Some of the women there are incredible

I have now had 3 pints, hence am less intimidated by the place.

Ipanema, Copacabana & Leblon are mainly guarded areas.
You should be fine there.
Just keep an eye out if you're taking out cash. If you get robbed don't fight back, just give the little you got & accept fate. Too many get shot because they fight back if being ripped off buying drugs etc.

Lapa should be fine too but be careful downtown & don't bother going north of Maracana...that's asking for it
