You know, we were thinking about this for a 2017 trip and 2018 trip, but that Zika virus has everyone nervous. They are even concerned about the Olympics. For that reason, now is NOT the time.
I went in September of 2016. Spent two weeks in and around the Olympic Grounds.. (People's Olympic Park...saw games on large outdoor screens) tickets became expensive and the New York Organization that was handling all United States transactions. Dropped the ball in administration and sales. Buying my tickets for the last Paralympic Game was less than $200 for family of four. If I bought them from the United States group there was no guarantee they would reach me in time, be valid if they did nor be honoured once I show up at the venue. On the part of the United States in general...they sabotaged the efforts of Brazil. The lack of support...running the untrue rumors of wide spread Zika....and not staying informed enough to know the threat of catching Zika during that time...based on weather / location and other factors had been minimized. The locals sleep with windows wide open all night. Women , Men ( lol...in speedo's) trying to look jock like...were everywhere. Children and Babies dressed just enough to be clothed is how they live constantly. Brazil is a beautiful place. CopaCabana is nice...saw many Favela residences...shanty but dressed in beautiful colorful paintings and street art.
Don't cancel your trip.
Florida has Zika...Brazil with some proper preparation and some Avon repellent that works...is breathtaking. Like any urban area of the United States you just don't go anywhere especially in Brazil day or night.
Learn how to say Thank You and "No Obragato" ( no thank you ) use some spanish words if your caught being chatted up by locals.. ( si / hola) englis only... (english only ) and meet the locals..the buses..many cabs and Metro train especially is awesome. Be prepared for a lot of walking....catch the metro more...only $4.50..end to end ride.

Next Olympic Game's are in Japan...It would be nice to go.

I didn't get to the many museum's they have. Brazil is rich in our Afrikan culture..lots of traditions, foods and dress... still practiced and celebrated. Your group could share that if you happen to go and reseach what is preserved...possibly within those museum's .

The mountains in Brazil have me geeked!

Be careful if you do go.... There is rampant crime, poverty and disease there. Go with a group and stay with the group

Extreme water pollution is common in Brazil, where the majority of sewage is not treated.
Raw waste runs through open-air ditches to streams and rivers that feed the Olympic water sites.

An AP analysis of water quality revealed dangerously high levels of viruses and bacteria from human sewage in Olympic and Paralympic venues — results that alarmed international experts and dismayed competitors training in Rio, some of whom have already fallen ill with fevers, vomiting and diarrhea.

And it's a country that treats women like crap...extremely abusive

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
