Hi,

We (my friend and I) are going to be in Rio prob from the 11th-17th. it would be great to meet any others going. We haevnt yet bought any tickets for the parade, and may either just buy them from the vendors when we get there. We are going to be pretty clueless and probably constantly lost - typical tourists, but I love that! (I do speak Spanish, so may not be completely helpless, Im sure I can communicate somehow).

Anyways, would be god to meet up with people there, drop us a line.

I'll be there Feb 11-18, I'd like to meet up with CSers a few times for sure.

I'm staying with a friend from/living in Rio, I think in Sao Conrado area, I don't know much about that area. I asked him about tickets to parade, he said they typically just go to the street parties which are all over the place & free.

Anyhow, lets get some CS meetups!

Ahhhhh Well looks like I may not be able to meet you all. Our accommodation has fallen through - the hotel has basically cancelled the booking . So we are stuck. Does anyone have any advice or is it now impossible without paying 1000$ a night?

Hi, Im travelling solo and will be finding the CS meetups for sure. I alos dont have any accomodation in rio yet. Would anyone be interested in renting an apartment for the week of carnival? I think between 4 it would be cheaper then A hostel. I would be happy to sleep on the floor if necessary.

Hi

My friend and I are planning on starting our travels round South America at carnival. Bit crazy as I only had this idea last week and didn't think about where I would lay my head etc!

So.... 2 girls both 32 and willing to share an apartment.

Hollar back if interested.

Cheers

Will, Owen, Annie:

Just posted this on a different blog but this hostel may have room for you. This is my first stay at this hostel but I researched over 20 in rio and this was the best. Owners are from the UK and the location seems to be in the middle of all the action. I'm staying there from Feb 13-19th.

SAMBA VILLA (HOSTEL)
Evaristo da Veiga St 147 (Esquina com rua Mem de Sa) Lapa- Rio De Janeiro-Brazil
Email: reservations@sambavilla.com
website: sambavilla.com
Owner: Katterina

I think they have five more beds left. They require a 7 day reservations for Carnival (Feb 13th-19th). Total ends up being $550 (US).They have AC in all the rooms, its all co-ed style dorm rooms, tons of bathrooms and they also have free food, booze and a free ticket to Carnival as well.

I'm trying to get a group of fellow CS peep's to meet up here since a pub is always good place to gather the troops.

Hi,

I am also thinking to go to Carnaval by my own. It's realy hard to find accommodation. Did you find any?

Greetz,

Hi CS friends,


I'll be in Rio from Feb 10 till 18. Maybe we can meet on Wednesday or Thursday to get to know each other before the real carnival madness starts?! Always available for an afternoon at Ipanema beach or a drink at the bar! ;-)
