      ... us. Delicious!

      I haven't had any trouble or seen any. The area we are in is near Lapa which is notorious for robbery as it is usually thronging with people, mostly at night. Having said that, common sense goes a long way. When we go out at night it's only in groups, I carry nothing with me, which is actually quite refreshing, not to have to keep an eye on anything. You bring a minimal amount of cash for the evening and all the ...

The food is pretty good, lots of spiced Turkish meat, and we meet this Mexican woman who is in Brazil following Mexico for the World Cup. Seems like everyone but Americans can just take time off and not have to deal with the repercussions.

      ... and then knocked them down and left them where they lay - scattered and disoriented.
      As with many old cemeteries, some of the burial sites have been neglected and now have a ragged, wild look to them. Several have been vandalized, including Mauro's family crypt, and names of the dead have been removed along with many of the ornamental statues and icons.
