    Where is the best place to stay in Rio de Janeiro?

    The place I stayed while I was in Rio de Janeiro was an awesome little side street that had about 5 hostels in it. It was 3 blocks from Ipanema beach on 175 Rua Barao da Torre on the eastern end. The five hostels were: Ipanema Waves Hostel Harmonia Hostel Rio Backpackers Ipanema The LightHouse Hostel Girl From Ipanema Hostel As you can imagine having 5 hostels right next to each other means everyone parties together and it is very secure with guards and a locked gate to make sure your things are secure. almost 12 years ago

    What are some things to see in Buenos Aires?

    I went to Buenos Aires in June 07. One of the best cities I have ever been to. There is something to do in Buenos Aires every day and night of the week. The flea market in San Telmo is great, they run on Sundays If you are in Argentina make sure you see some Tango. There are plenty of restaurants where you can eat and watch at the same time. The best district to stay is Palermo near the Plaza Italia metro stop. There is a great place called Tierra Santa - a theme park based on the bible. All made out of fibreglass! I will get back to you with more stuff when I can review all my tickets etc. almost 12 years ago

    What is a good day trip from Lisbon?

    If you go to Lisbon some things to see are: Castelo de Sao Jorge - big castle on top of one of the hills Torre de Belem - Another little castle on the river front Mosteiro dos Jeronimos - great big church, worth a see if you aren't sick of europes churches by then. Cristo Rei - a big statue of Jesus across the river from the main city If you go out at night go to Bairro Alto, it is where all the students hang out and you can find all sorts of cool bars and clubs there (don't get too drunk the streets all look the same) If you mean where to travel outside of Lisboa. Other cities/areas to see are Sintra, Cascais or Sines. All great places worth a visit (at most 2 hours drive away) almost 12 years ago
