Flag of Brazil  , State of Rio de Janeiro,
Thursday, August 13, 2009

Well folks got the skinny on Rio and it aint pretty. Rio de Janeiro consist of various parts. The only part that everyone else sees on TV is coppacabana beach which is a fantasyland full of tourist and prostitutes. Not my cup of tea!!! The real rio like Tujica, Carioca, Centro, Botofogo and others is just like any other South American city ive been to......Dirty, crime ridden and very itersting. Much more intersting than weekend  tourist and prostitutes.. Did I say pros-titutes again, a brotha cant find a regular girl here, its damn hard.

Anyways... I talked with many locals and they all say the same things Coppacabana is fantasyland... so really im trying to spend all my time in other parts than where im staying. Unfortunately I booked an apartment for one month but after one week and a half im ready to get to a much smaller city in the North of Brazil. I just booked a plane to fortaleza which is a change of pace, much smaller and much slower. They told me that Rio was the tourist capital of Brazil and this is an international city.

Very, very good infrastructure, can drink the water, got a Metro train to any part of Rio and really Coppa, the tourist area, is 95% like the united states but thats the fantasy. But in the US youve got your Newerks, South West Atlantas and stuff, the seedy areas so all cities have em. Theres just more of em here.

Catch yall later up north Brasil
