Regarding the 2/19/08 comment by Luis, the first time I was in a cab in Rio the driver went through the red light, in fact he sped up as he approached the signal. This was about eleven p.m. in Ipanema. As you might expect, I was a little perturbed.

Looks like a lot of rough boys.

Part of the facade of the Cine Orly can be seen on this photograph, taken at Carnival in February 2009:

Wow Ken, thanks for the excerpt. It was pretty interesting.

When I was in Rio with my friends two years ago we stayed in a condo a block from the boy bar in Copacabana which is also right next to Ipanema. We never made it to Cinelandia nor can I say we knew much about it. Even if we had, I don’t think we would have done much exploring there. Crime is Rio is quite prevalent and you have to be very careful where you go and when. The description in your excerpt made it sound very dicey.

In Rio, Cars do not stop at traffic lights after 10PM. ATM’s stop working after 8PM to cut down on robberies. We were told to always take cabs after dark and to never take the subway at any time. Being from New York, I usually take those admonitions with a grain of salt, but I didn’t here. I actually saw two people robbed on the beach.

Be that as it may, I have to say we had a fantastic time. The Christ Statue, the cable car to Sugar Loaf Mountain, the beautiful beaches and the fantstic food were incredble. And it was so inexpensive! I would absolutely go back, but I wouldn’t let my guard down. Thanks again!
