Looking for fun people in Ipanema :]

Hi there! My name is Michelle and I'm 25. I'm from New Jersey but I've been living in Miami for the past 6 years. I've been doing an internship set up through my school for the past 10 weeks in Sao Paulo and at the end of this week will finally be my opportunity to travel!

This Thursday night I'm headed to Ubatuba with some friends. On Sunday, September 9th, I'll be taking the bus from Ubatuba to Rio by myself.

I will be staying at The Mango Tree Hostel in Ipanema (by Posto 9) through Thursday, September 13th, at which point I'll be taking a bus from Rio back to Sao Paulo.

So far, I have no plans for while I'm there. Obviously I want to see Christ the Redeemer and the Sugarloaf and the typical "tourist" attractions. Haha, and I definitely want to check out a favela funk party! Luckily, the hostel I'm staying at plans a lot of activities but I'm always up for seeing the city from a local's point of view.

Also, I speak zero Portuguese, but I am fluent in Spanish.

Let's hang out?
