I was just wondering who is all going to be in rio for the new year? I was supposed to go with a friend but he has to be the most irresponsible person i know and can't come up with the money. Therefore, i am now going solo for two weeks, though one week is in Rio and some days will be spent in Sao Luis and Sao Paulo.

I'm sure i will meet many new people during my travels, but it would be cool to meet up with some people when i get there. About me:

I'm 25, male, from Philadelphia. Hit me up on my email if you are interested. I'll be staying in Ipanema, not that it really matters.

Tchau e tenha uma bom dia.

I am planning to go to South America for 2 weeks from about Christmas until the first week of January. I was thinkin Argentina, then New Years in Rio. I've got a free ticket, so I'm definitely goin, but the itinerary is still up in the air.

That probably doesn't help too much, but I thought I'd get the dialogue goin just in case I do decide to go down there for NY2K7. I live in Portland, Oregon, and I'm a 27 male who makes a good wingman. haha.

Either way, I'm guessin that New Years would rock in Rio. Ever been?

Yeah thats cool. Did you say you are travelling alone? I'm going solo now. I got confirmation that my buddy can't make it. I already put a deposit on an apartment in ipanema just off the beach near posto 9. As a result i am switching my itineray and am staying in rio only from december 27th to january 5. Never been to rio for new years, but two million people on the beach sounds like an incredible time!

Crash at my place if you need. You be my wingman and i'll give you the extra bed. haha. And that goes for you to man. If you need a wingman, i'm there too.

Well boys...
The testosterone on this thread is a bit much. But yes... I will still be here during New Years and am a professional entertainment guide... which means... I know where everything is and all the best parties! I live here, and have been here for the last six months or so... so when you boys get here... let me know... thinkin I can put you boys to shame... but it´ll probably be fun doin it! I will most likely be working/partying... but I can probably let you guys in on the scoop.
Take Care...

I'm a 21-year-old guy from Brisbane, Australia and I'll definitely be in Rio over New Years. I'm coming up via Chile, Argentina & Uruguay and Rio will be the last place I visit on my trip before I fly home on the 4th. Would been keen to hang out cause I'm travelling on my own and I've heard Rio can be a bit dodgy if you're on your own.

Cheers, Andy.
