I live in Meier and was wondering if anyone knew of a reasonably-priced gym in the area?   I know Smart Fit is a good one, but there prices change all of the time.  Does anyone know of another good chain of gyms?   Thanks

It probably has something todo with getting older and the fact that I have been wearing rigid contacts for the last 25 years. I wonder if someone else has got this problem and how you are dealing with it. MAybe someone has some good tips before I go and spend a fortune on a doctor. :)  Any suggestions welcome.

I just read an article about the number of people that died from Dengue fever last year and it was up 36%, which is kind of worrying...  What can be done to avoid Dengue and what are the dangers if you get it? Thank you

I came across this article stating thea 70% of sewage in Rio goes straight into the ocean... I find this quite shocking and don't think I will go into the water any more...  Here's the article: http://www.gadsdentimes.com/article/20131216/API/1312160814?p=3&tc=pg

I was thinking about riding all the way from zona Sul to Grumari, but I don't know if that is a safe thing to do... especially the tunnels look kinda scary. Has anyone done this before?

Could anyone recommend a good english speaking hairdresser? I will be relocating to Rio in 2 weeks time. We will be based in Leblon so somewhere local would be great. I've have only just found a decent hairdresser here in Hong Kong and now I need to start the search again! Hope someone has some good tips. Thx

Does Brazil have an efficient healthcare system?  What are the main differences between public and private sectors?  Is it recommended to purchase private health insurance?  Thanks
