Well, this is what a red neck must look like. Today was very beautiful as you can see from the pictures...I hope. So far the weather was unusually cold and wet for December. Riding my bicycle from Copacobana to Ipanema and Leblon was great. I also booked my flights to Foz Iguacu and Florianopolis and considering I booked at very short notice and high season- here in Rio with an agent- I got a good deal. The problem is you are unable to book internal flights with smaller airlines such as Web Jet online if you do not have a CPF number (social security) which you can apply for if you are a resident. Well, I am not yet! Using you passport number won't work either. Well, hope they will change all this before 2014/2016 as they will loose the business and, I guess, there international outlook.
