Shared apartment FOR RENT - CARNIVAL season - indoor camping
Posted February 24th, 2011 - 11:05 pm by from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Permalink)
As it has been so huge the number of people asking for a couch during these last weeks, I talked to my mom and convinced her to make available her apartment that is empty (it's now for sale). So she's supposed to rent it for people that is coming to enjoy the carnival party.

As it's completely empty, I gave the idea of renting it for many people for a cheap price, instead of just one renter.

So the idea is to turn it into a kind of "indoor camping" and of course the price proportionaly lower as a camping. There's no furnitures there, no beds, but just a fridge, light and water. So people should take their mattress, sleeping bags, tents or whatever to rest there.

The question of security of sleeping among strangers, there's no problem. My mom was also afraid of strange people getting in there. Than I explained that everybody we'll accept is just CS people, with a minimum of reliability.

The place is in Tijuca, a nice neighborhood quite close to Downtown, and so very easy to get to parties there or in south zone (Copacabana, Ipanema, etc).

whoever couldn't still find a couch and is not supposed to pay absurd prices for hostels, can call me.
