Rio de Janeiro Stories and Tips

Life in RIO

Among the hotels that line the beach in RIO it's sometimes easy to forget the vast amount of poverty that exists in the city. But no matter what I have always found the locals to be very friendly and welcoming. They have an amazing positive spirit in spite of their living conditions. I saved all my hotel soap, shampoo, lotion etc.. the day I left, gave it away to a mother and her children who were living on the streets. I would encourage all tourists to do the same. It's called instant karma.
