Yep, another newie.
Would like to say thanx for all the info and advice I have picked up on here over the past few months, finally made the plunge and bought a GTS-t. Pick it up inNovember when I get back to UK.
Had a lot of laughs too, makes 12 hour nightshifts a lot better.
Don't spend much time in the UK but hope to meet some of you .
Keep up the good work.:D :guiness:

Redsky,
Where abouts are you in Brasil?. I lived in Rio for 3 years and loved the place, what are you doing there?. I can guess for sure you won't find a Skyline crusing down Avenido Atlantica(Copacabana!).

I am about 400km east of Rio in a plave called Vitoria, well 64 nm offshore to be exact. Lots of bars and big beach ,no hassle either.
Would never bring the Skyline here, don't trust the go juice .

Redsky,
Ah yes the girls!!!, I could have watched them parading down Copocabana and Ipanema beaches all day!!!. Enough to make a man go blind!. She will definately have a culture shock(not sure whicih way though!). Is she a Carioca girl?. Without doubt Brasilian girls take a lot to beat. I guess Brasil isn't as safe as it used to be, but then that applies to most countries these days.

I thought PetroBras etx.. produced some decent crude?.

think I had better start using spell check or stop thinking of the girls, beaches etc. when on-line.
They have started to mix alcohol with the petrol now to keep costs down. Don't fancy having abandon the car in a Brazzo pot hole, not even the yanks make them as big as these.
Not carioca girl, from Forteleza so she suffers from the cold down here.
Only 2 more nightshifts then my flight to freedom.
You sound like you miss it a bit

Descuple amigo, it certainly is a small world and this is one of the better places on it.
I am in dire need of some Portugese lessons ( a few English ones wouldn't go amiss either).
Off for some early morning bronzy.

Bringing someone back eh? Thats what my father did 31 years ago and shes never gone back... (that is my mother btw ;) )

I tend to go back every two years or so, went to the 2001 Carnaval in Rio, unsfortunately may have to give it a miss next year. Have a massive family based largely around Zona Sul in Rio - I was born in Botafogo but grew up here. All school hols were spent there though.

As for a Skyline in Rio... no bloody way mate. One of my primo's had his Gol stripped in 2 hours flat when he broke down near Rocinha.... :)

Hope you are enjoying yourself, and take it easy on the caipirinhas... ;)

Ciao,
Pad
