1) I am renting an apartment on Rua Djalma Ulrich for one week in March.
On a map and in pictures it looks nice and safe.
Can someone let me know what its like?
Are there food markets near by?
2)Can someone suggest some words or phrases which will be necessary for a tourist to survive in Rio?
I am learning a little portugese and can order a drink and ask where the bathroom is and say obrigado, etc... anything else?
