brittney :

I am planning a missions trip to Rio de Janeiro. Does anyone know of any churches or missionarys I could get intouch with? We realy just want to go and help do whatever we can.

zabadass :
"i think you spell that wrong but i sure they could use your help check yahoo local search for churches in that area."
Randy D :
"Rio de Janeiro needs A LOT of help, but, then again, so does nycity and chicago and miami and atlanta and dallas and la and sanfrancisco, oakland, sandiego, and on and on, here in the USA. If you really want to be of help, stick around here. We've got PLENTY of need. God Bless you."
go128bpm :
"Actually, Rio has a huge load of places like this! I can't list all of them, but you MUST visit "Igreja da Candelaria" and "Mosteiro de Sao Bento". Amazing architecture! Search for images of them!"
pjallittle :
"Let's get real, in another question you asked, you said you loved to travel and experience culture but had no money. Now you pop up as a missionary? Rio de Janeiro is a thriving major city in a great country. But as others have observed, there's plenty of poverty, there are slums and if you really want to help, find and identify an organization that's already there and send the money which an airline ticket would cost directly to the church. They have all the help they need, in the form of human labor, one more kid from the USA isn't going to be useful at all. You and your group will do far more good for your own people right here in the USA...........that is, if you're genuinely concerned........."
javierf1987 :

I'm traveling to Rio de Janeiro next summer, any recommendations on which part of the city to stay on?

catchernkeeper :
"There are lots of places right on Copacabana Beach. I stayed at the Luxor Copacabana, which was decent. It depends on what you want, but the location was really good. Take a helicopter ride around the Christ Redeemer statue. It was so cool!"
Vinicius :
"I don't know where you should stay but you should visit the city main attractions like the Christ Redeemer and the Pão de Açúcar. The cable car ride is very good!"
FOREVER Q :

How would you spend your 10 day vacation in Rio De Janeiro and Buenos Aires? I am a 28 yr old male seeking attractive women and exciting places to party in January. Would you recommend something like Tours Gone Wild? Hotels or Hostels? Im thinking 6 days in Rio and 4 days in Buenos Aires. Please give me some ideas on how you would plan your trip?

David :
"Never been there, but boy do I want to go and see those women too! :-D"
Matteo M :
"Buenos Aires... beautiful, elegant and trendy city. Be prepared to out at night, everynight. Party starts at 1.00am and ends at 8.00am. Try to head to Palermo soho area with cool shops and trendy food joints. Clubs are located around there too and in costanegra area. However, this is just covering the nights... with only 4 days in Buenos Aires you may not see much. This is a huge city with plenty to do.....check out yahoo travel for places to visit! I went last summer and I really enjoyed my stay, great people, great food.. and the ladies.....muy BUENO! PS: i would stay in a hotel close to palermo area.. close to the subte stations... ENJOY!"
