"Just use your common sense......" Hassles from people on the street Tip by dogwoman

As a tourist you are an easy target for drug dealers who will offer you stuff on the street.
Many people will try and sell you goods, some of it is so obviously stolen,just say no,(preferably in Portuguese!)
Often you'll see women with children. Sometimes the children are drugged to make them sleep while the women ask for money.
As in all big cities,be aware of who's around you ,of pickpockets and enjoy this beautiful city. Despite this caution, I still feel this is a very safe city compared to London.
