As I read through the TA Forums for Rio de Janeiro I realize that many of us are traveling to or through Rio de Janeiro during the same periods.
I know that others in this forum, such as DJ, are trying to arrange informal Trip Advisor get-togethers in Rio; I would like to suggest that forum members who wish to arrange an evening out with other TA members post here with the dates that they will be in Rio de Janeiro and see if any other members will be there during the same period.
TA Get-Togethers need not just be evenings out or night-clubbing affairs, we could also get together for lunches, beach parties, to visit tourist sites or souvenir hunts at the Hippe Fair in Ipanema.
I will next be in Rio during the second week of March 2007 and then again during the last week in June 2007.
If any other TA members will be in Rio during those times, I will be happy to arrange for a get-together.
If you are going to be in Rio de Janeiro during other times, you can post here to see if other Trip Advisor members will be there as well and maybe arrange for a TA gathering.
I think this could be a pleasant way for TA members from this forum to meet one another especially when abroad in Rio de Janeiro.
Safe travels to you all!
