English, but I have a handy International Translator that saved my vegetarian friend from ordering cow tongue in Ekaterinburg, Russia!

Most Memorable Travel Experience
To name a few - riding horses from our Ger Camp somewhere outside Ulaan Bataar to visit a nearby Mongolian nomad family in their ger. Sharing a bottle of vodka with the mounted police in Ulan Ude while convincing them we didn't want to go horseback riding at 1 a.m. (well, I did but there was no group consensus on my side). Getting almost swallowed by the high tide in Nice while frantically holding onto my sister's sandals that were too big for my feet out of fear she'd kill me if I came ashore without them.
I quit a perfectly good job to travel around the world solo for a year, and it was the trip of a lifetime! It has inspired even more adventures, but as I must refill the coffers, I will stay put and work while planning little adventures along the way.

Hi Christine. I been to Brazil many times. The first time I went with my girlfriend, Was the worst time. Some of the men out there live in cavemen era "Rio/San paulo". That's the only safety concern, I would say for you. Would you be travelling alone or in a group? If your in a group you will be fine.
