"Visitors from the civilized..." Brazil Warnings Or Dangers Tip by martinelli

Brazil Warnings and Dangers: 97 reviews and 53 photos

Visitors from the civilized world, beware : the cars won't stop for you to cross the street. Is there a traffic light around? Wait till it gets red (for the cars). Then wait to see if all the cars stop before the traffic light. They do? Sure? None of the drivers look like he's in a hurry? So say your prayers, hold on to the hand of the Lord and cross the street. There are only 3 places in the world - as far as I'm concerned - where the traffic is messier than here: Paris, Rome and Pequin.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
