Posted January 5th, 2011 - 1:02 am by from Scottsdale, United States (Permalink)
Who would like to meetup during Carnaval?

If you are interested, please state if you are looking for someone to parade with or someone to go to parties with.

Also let us know if you just want to meet for a drink or a meal.

It would be fun.

I can't wait for Carnaval!!! I definitely want to meet up with CSers. I'm up for anything.

My friend and I are arriving on Mon, the 7th while Carnaval is in full swing, so hopefully we can catch up with everyone while we're there. We're also planning on going to the Sambadromo, but probably for the winners parade since I heard that the price for that is more affordable than the other nights.

Hello everybody! I´m definitely up for a meeting! I will be in Rio from 3th to 10th, now I'm trying to find a couch or hostel or whatever. See you there!

I'll be in Rio for the whole carnival week. Me and four other rented a place in Catete from the 4th until the 10th of march. After that, I'll be at Adventure Hostel in Ipanema. One of those friends is also a CS member and told me that, maybe, on the thursday after Carnival will take place a meeting at the CS Point in Copa (Pizza in cone). Well, I'll be checking this post daily for more informations until Carnival. I hope to attend to at least one of the Carnival meetings. See ya!

Estarei no Rio durante toda a semana do Carnaval 2011 (de 04 a 13/03). Eu e mais quatro amigos alugamos um ap no Catete, até o dia 10. Depois disso estarei no Adventure Hostel em Ipanema. Uma dessas amigas também é membro do CS e me disse que, provavelmente, haja um meeting no CS point em Copa (pizza in cone). Até o carnaval chegar, acompanherei este tópico para mais informações. Espero poder comparecer a pelo menos um dos meetings de Carnaval. Até breve!

Hi there,

I just realized how late it is to start organizing a trip to Rio for Carnival, but I was traveling in Asia for the last few months and didn't think about booking a place in Rio ... now I am in Buenos Aires and trying to get organized. I also might stay in Rio for a couple of weeks after Carnival .... anybody interested to share an apartment for that time to avoid spending a fortune ...

Please get in touch!

I will be arriving in Rio Friday March 4 and staying until Friday March 11th. I have a couch surf host from the 4th-9th then will be at Terrasse Hostel in Ipanema the 9th-11th.

Hello!

I'm going to be in Rio from the 7-11. I'm staying in Ipanema for the duration and would love to meet up with people as I am traveling solo.
I live in Brasilia but can someone tell me if my phone number will work in Rio? Will it be considered long distance?
Thanks so much!

Oi!

Vou estar no Rio 03/07 - 12 / 3. Fico na Ipanema e gostaria de encontrar-se com pessoas como eu estou viajando sozinho.
Eu moro em Brasília, mas alguém pode me dizer se o meu número de telefone de trabalho no Rio? Será considerado de longa distância?

Muito obrigada!

Posted February 19th, 2011 - 8:04 pm by from Buenos Aires, Argentina (Permalink)
Opa! Quis dizer 07/03 - 11/03!

It would be great to meet up with CSers for a Meal and Drink, Day at the Beach, Party or hit up the Parade. I am staying in Copacabana from 27th February - 9th March and free during these days.
