10 years ago, I would have never thought anything of this. But I have a trip planned for my wife and I in March and we are reconsidering given the latest violent news from Rio. It seems every form of transport could become dangerous. If driving, you may get hit and robbed. If taking a tour bus, you are announcing yourself as a large group of tourists, and I understand not to take public transport in Rio. Can anyone who has been there recently attest to the safey, or lack therof, for travelers and visitors.
