I have just read another post about brazil's weather in july and was hoping for some clarification. We are travelling mid July and my reading seems to indicate that the weather would be 15- 22C, which is similar to Sydney in winter, meaning jumpers and warm clothes. Is this right.
My husband and I will be travelling with a 4 year old and I am concerned about the crime, our government foreign affairs website has just upgraded the level of caution needed for travelling to rio. There are 5 categories, the last one being 'do not travel', so at least it is not there yet.
We will be staying with a long lost relative so I am guessing he will only take us to safe places etc, and we are staying at Leblon, any places we should particularly avoid with a small child.
