    It seems ridiculously difficult.

    WTF?
    Just do it by mail using a visa service.

    Things are very rarely that simple on the ground and the problem I'm sure has many sides to it. But you also need to ask why don't BOPE heavily target the police who except bribes or the corrupt politicians and officials that run the country into the ground.

    I got lucky the other day and found a RT ticket Rio-SP for only $100 USD. So I snagged it. I was set to fly out of Rio this coming week, but I extended a week so I can go back to SP: the. Figured I would just fly out of SP GRU (1. 5 hour bus ride from Moema). Then I called my airline and the change fee to fly out of SP was going to cost me $150 (even though I'm on miles) plus a one way ticket to SP was $120. So $270. Instead of doing that I got the RT Rio-SP. Saved $170. And flying right out of CGH which is just 15 minutes the apartment.

    Bus ride

    Nowadays national flight tickets in Brazil can often be cheaper than the bus. If it's a long ride and the flight ticket is cheaper than the bus then I choose to fly without doubt. In the early nineties the cheap flight tickets were very rare. Back then I mostly travelled by bus. Sometimes up to 60 hours journeys. It's something I never regret. Very fascinating seeing the sertão, jungles, mountains, meeting nice people, having sex on buses and also experience 40 bandits attacking a large bus convoy in the middle of the night.

    Regarding the bus ride São Paulo-Rio, it's "only" a 6 hour ride in a very comfortable bus with a very scenic ride passing by beautiful mountains. I recommend it.

I have been studying the last 50 posts and I feel up to date but I have a few questions. . When I travel to Argentina or other SA countries I take a lot of USA cash Is this necessary in Brazil or is collecting Brazil currency from ATM the same.
    Just for information regarding ATM's in Brazil, according to international statistics Brazil is one of the worst countries regarding skimming of credit cards. So when you use ATM's make sure you use the one that minimize the chance for skimming. Such as guarded ones or closed during night etc.

    I don't know what is the right way, there always seems to be someone who knows better, but I use ATM. I just have a few hundreds for emergencies.

    Taking a bus is a great way to see the country. I took once a bus from Rio - SP, SP - Corumba, Puerto Suarez - Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia and it was well worth the trouble, even if not cheaper than a plane. Airplanes are like the subway in the city. It takes you fast from point A to point B, but you will not learn how the city looks like. I always try to take a bus, when I'm not in a hurry.

    Sometimes people want to take their time and enjoy visiting and seeing a country in a way that you can't from an airplane.

    Cash is King!

    When I travel to Brazil, I always take plenty of dollars and get local currency from a good cambio. I've never used an ATM in Brazil, and I don't plan to anytime soon. Too many guys have been ripped off by thieves getting into their accounts. Even from using ATMs at the airport! So, for me in Brazil it's cash all the way.

    When UPP police are more interested in eating açaí than to take care of heavily armed bandits standing 30 metres away, then there is a serious problem. Police who doesn't get their salaries payed are happy to accept bribes from the bandits.

    What goes around

    Some of you guys who come to Rio occasionally and take the time to contribute should know if you need anything, just send a quick PM. Where to stay, places to eat, where to meet non-pros, etc.

    Not talking about the guys who make post after post of basically unintelligible nonsense. But, normal guys who act like grownups not the 50 year-old still living in his mother's basement who gets to go out and play once or twice a year.

    Well, not going to happen in our lifetime.

    A friend of mine said, when I kept asking about favelas, "Let it be. People in favelas live their lives and we live ours". Must be Brazilian fatalism.
