Jim:

another tip regarding your cam equipment...do not go into the hillside favielas (slums is the only word to use for translation here) alone. It's best to hire a taxi and be driven up into the hills...do not stray too far from the taxi, take your shots and vamoose. We did the same, and when I tried to cross over the road the taxi driver let out a yell as if to say..quot;get back in the taxi, you fool!" Wife gave me "what for: too!

You can hire taxis to take you all over town (to Corcovado, famous statue of Christ with outstreched arms, to various beaches, to dinner, to the gem stores, etc)...a lot cheaper than prvate guides who will charge you a major premium.
