Could you tell real a.netters apart from amateur a.netters? I could. First of all, real a.netters really know their sh-t. They can tell a 777 apart from a 767 just by glancing, they can identify an aircraft in a movie based on engine sound; and if you name a destination, they can actually tell you all the airlines that fly there out of their home airports, with flight numbers and everything (seriously!). Oh, and real a.netters would go to the end of the world to fly exotic, vintage aircrafts and airlines regardless of safety records. Me? I’m a disgrace to the a.net enterprise. I freaked out when I learned that my flight to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was on a “Fokker” 100. I was proved wrong after this trip, however. Fokker 100 turned out to be a cool aircraft: safe, spacious, and swift.




So, come on over. Let’s all fly up to Rio de Janeiro from Buenos Aires on Tam Fokker 100.


http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/a.jpg


#1. Choose the right Frequent Flyer card for your trip. List of partner airlines and conditions of earning miles change all the time. I checked with the airlines’ website and learned that I could earn miles with AF and AA on flights operated by JJ (Tam). I opted for AF Frequence Jeune because AA is becoming more and more irrelevant to me, now that I no longer live in Mexico. AF Frequence Jeune is a frequent flyer program tailored for young travelers. Because of France’s socialist backdrop, young people get some serious discounts on air travels, movie tickets, train passes, etc. etc. etc. When AF Frequence Jeune debuted in (I think) 2001, the conditions were much more interesting. Then, Frequence Jeune members could buy one-year open ticket at a discount price. It’s not that interesting anymore these days, which is fine because I just turned 25—thus an automatic transfer to Flying Blue.


#2. Pick the right phrase book.


#3. Grab the right SIM card for your GSM phone. T-Mobile is my #1 choice. T-Mobile’s hip, international, economical and, best of all, it’s pink!







#4. Now we’re ready to jet-set!!! This flight departs at 5AM, first scheduled flight out of EZE on that day! We went out tangoing until 1AM, got home at 130AM, left for the airport at 2AM, and arrived at EZE at 230AM. (Notice the elegant, perfect-10 Tango posture I’ve learned from the Argentine + My irresistible Thai charms).  praise

#5. EZE-GIG-EZE. Easy, Geek, Easy.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/f.jpg





#6. Flight PZ 704: EZE-GIG on Fokker 100. The flight is actually operated under Tam Mercosur’s title. Tam Mercosur is Tam’s regional network whose routes are focused on Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia. Note that the flags you see here don’t accurately reflect Mercosur—the South American “customs union”—membership. Full-status Mercosur members, to-date, are Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Venezuela.

#7. The Brazilian government retaliates Uncle Sam by making Americans pay 100 USD and suffer the visa-application hassles. It sucks, but I respect the Brazilian government for this retaliative measure.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/h.jpg





#8. A peek inside Tam Mercosur’s Fokker 100.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/j.jpg


#9. Two thumbs up for Tam. Decent breakfast was served even on this 3-hour flight!




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/k.jpg


http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/l.jpg


#10. Landing at GIG. Oh my Gawd,…have I died? Is this paradise? But how could this be? I did so many bad things when I was alive.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/m.jpg


#11. This little Fokker right here sure knew how to fly.







#12. Live bossa nova performance right before you enter customs. What a warm welcome. Bem-vindo a Brasil.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/o.jpg


http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/p.jpg




#13. A secluded island south of Rio de Janeiro. Brazil is a country of endless verdancy. It’s green everywhere, yet it’s extremely industrialized. You see all these oil platforms along the coast. With the world’s resources running out, we’ll be kissing Brazilians’ asses for decades, if not centuries, to come. Did you know that São Paulo, the economic center of Brazil, hosts more American and German companies than any other cities outside the U.S. and Germany? (This is why I’m here learning basic Portuguese).




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/q.jpg


#14. To prove my moxie to the host, I spent an entire afternoon chasing after a school of cuttlefish. I caught one baby cuttlefish 3 hours later. I wanted eat him but he was too cute. I felt sorry for the poor creature, so I let him go. As a result, I got voted off the island. Man???!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/18.jpg


#15. Back to Rio de Janeiro, a throbbing metropolis that’s seamlessly stitched with nature. With the exception Barcelona, I think Rio de Janeiro is one unique place where you can be businessmen by day and beach bums after 5PM.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/19.jpg


http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/20.jpg


#16. Goin’ (window) shoppin’ on Ipanema beach. Without a doubt, Rio de Janeiro is the most jet-setting city in Latin America. It is way more international than Buenos Aires. I visited H. Stern (famous Brazilian jeweler) headquarters in Rio and they even had a Thai salesman to cater to Thai jet-setters and jewelry buyers (like me, hehehehe). They speak every language there at H. Stern. Brazilians also appreciate international cuisines. They know how to eat spicy and how to eat sushi and sashimi the way Japanese do.







http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/22.jpg


#17. The world-renowned Cristo Redentor (Portuguese for Christ the Redeemer), overlooking and protecting the city of Rio de Janeiro from the top of Corcovado mountain.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/23.jpg


#18. Mangoes! I’m pissed. I thought Thailand had a monopoly on sweet mangoes! I have to admit that Brazilian mangoes, pineapples, and papayas set the standard—a really high one—for tropical fruits.







#19. Jardim Botânico of Rio de Janeiro, which houses some really amazing exotic plants you won’t find elsewhere in the world.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/25.jpg


#20. Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain) offers a breathtaking view of Rio de Janeiro.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/26.jpg


#21. From Pão de Açúcar, you have an unobstructed view of Santos Dumont regional airport (SDU). I’d hate to be the pilot that’s got to land at this airport. There’s very little room for error.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/27.jpg


#22. Rocinha, a favela (slum) of Rio which supposedly ranks among the world’s largest slums and also the most privileged. I wouldn’t mind living here at all. Look at the view. They’ve even got their own McDonalds’ franchise and their own local TV channel! One thing I admire about Brazilian culture is its candid acceptance of poverty. Brazilians actually revere flavela as the source of Brazilian identity: bossa nova, samba dance, etc., etc., etc.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/28.jpg





#23. My first time in a helicopter. Aw naaaaaaaaw, we’re gonna craaaaaaaaaaaaash. If there’s one perfect place in the world to go helicopter sightseeing, it is Rio de Janeiro. Rio’s rich geographic relief is much more interesting. Don’t waste your money to do it in Las Vegas or NYC or anywhere else.




http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/30.jpg


http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/ryeroamito/31.jpg


#24. To sum up the marvels of Rio, I share with you these two pictures taken from the helicopter. I need not say how blessed are the people of Rio de Janeiro. They’ve got everything. I mean ev-ver-eee-thing: the beach, the sun, the money, the music, the dance. But mind you, Brazil, especially Rio, ain’t cheap!

#25. Our one week in paradise came to an end. One of very few Varig flights that day was GIG-FRA. There were 20-something passengers boarding that transatlantic flight! It was unbelievable. You could actually count the number of passengers queuing to board the flight. I know this because my flight back to Buenos Aires left just an hour later from an adjacent gate.

Totally! My Brazilian guide cautioned me not to take camera or credit card with me while walking on the street. I didn't listen to his BS and nothing happened to me. It seemed like a really safe city to me, and extremely clean too. You have to be prudent like in any other big cities, of course. If you stay in the tourist area and don't stay out too late alone, then you'll be just fine.

Once you're there, I also recommend that you take one-day excursions to rural beaches north and south of Rio, like Arraial do Cabo and Angra dos Reis.  Wink

Hey!
Thanks for a picturesque resport! Rio does look nice. I like the shot of of the street, not just because of the businessmen turning beach bums (and abs), but the sight of a cycle lane always makes me happy..

No Rio for me yet, but look forward to Buenos Aires in a couple of months..

Hey Rye,

Really cool report, and wonderful pictures. I am glad you had a nice time in Brazil, although we all know the country you live in is far better. (just kidding).

I'd like to make a little and stupid correction...

Quoting KhunRyeroam (Thread starter):
Note that the flags you see here don�t accurately reflect Mercosur�the South American �customs union��membership.

1) Why "customs union" with inverted commas? As far as I know Mercosur is precisely a customs union with some free-transit policies also applying to people.
2) The flags you see represent all full-member states but Venezuela, which joined earlier this year, plus Chile and Bolivia, two associated members.

And last but not least, I see Mexicana Frecuenta, Iberia Plus, United Mileage Plus, Fréquence Jeune, etc. But where is your Aerolíneas Plus card?  Wink

Again, wonderful report. Keep them coming!

Edit- Typo

Saludos,
Marambio

Thank you Marcos for the correction. This is exactly what I'm talking about. There are real a.netters who know their sh-t and people like me who cut and paste from other people.

1. I quoted, unquoted the "customs union" because I have no idea what it actually means. It sounds too technical for someone like me. I just got that from www.wikipedia.org

2. I also knew about Chile and Bolivia being "associate members" from Wikipedia. But to keep the wording brief, I simply mentioned full-status members. But thank you nonetheless for clarifying the subject to a wider audience.

3. About Aerolíneas Plus card??? I was actually booked on AR flights for this trip to Rio. The scheduling was perfect and I was sooooooooooooo looking forward to flying AR before I leave Argentina. Unfortunately, I booked this trip as a package with ASATEJ (a huge travel agent network in Latin America, for those a.netters who are familiar with the name). ASATEJ decided to change us onto Tam the last minute...probably because Tam red-eye flights were cheaper.


And yes, you're right. Argentina has got a special place in my heart...this is why I've been here for 6 months already. It's harder to talk about things and places that are personal to you. But hang on tight. My homage-paying trip report for Argentina is coming up, pretty soon!

  

PS. When I said "they can identify an aircraft in a movie based on engine sound; and if you name a destination, they can actually tell you all the airlines that fly there out of their home airports, with flight numbers and everything (seriously!)" I was actually refering to MD11JUNKIE and to MARAMBIO.

Oh come on. It's just that we who live here and are "Mercosurians" get to know those little details that no foreigner must know. I almost grew up together with Mercosur (the establishment of the union, with the Treaty of Asunción, was signed when I was 3 years old) and some interest on this EU à la sud-américaine made me know this completely unuseful information.

Quoting KhunRyeroam (Reply 10):

1. I quoted, unquoted the "customs union" because I have no idea what it actually means. It sounds too technical for someone like me. I just got that from www.wikipedia.org

It means that products from the member countries see no tax duties imposed on them when imported to another member state. This applies to most goods, but there are some arguments about key sectors, which remain protected, such as cars and sugar. Besides, what I meant with "free-transit applying to people" is that all Mercosur nationals can enter any other member state just showing their national ID, so no need of a passport. Argentina also signed treaties with Chile and Bolivia on that subject.

Quoting KhunRyeroam (Reply 10):

2. I also knew about Chile and Bolivia being "associate members" from Wikipedia. But to keep the wording brief, I simply mentioned full-status members. But thank you nonetheless for clarifying the subject to a wider audience.

No worries, it makes sense. As a matter of fact, Mercosur signed a treaty with the Andean Community of Nations (CAN), which establishes all CAN members, i.e. Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru, are also associate members. Mexico, a member of NAFTA together with the USA and Canada, is a Mercosur observer.

Thank you! It should be against the law to live in Argentina for six months yet not travel to any other region of the country and think that Argentina is just Buenos Aires...

It's criminal for an A.netter not to be lured into one of several conveniently located Aerolineas Argentinas/Austral ticket offices in B.A. to purchase a domestic ticket to fly anywhere within the country and experience all the beautiful destinations that the country has to offer! And it is a death sentence if you choose LAN Argentina over AR instead! It's insane and criminal I tell you!



Sorry, I'm getting all carried away with all these airline commercials I'm finding on You Tube. This one is one of my favorites. When I first saw this particular Aerolineas Argentinas commercial in 2002, I admit my eyes got watery.

Amazing report and thanks for sharing your photos with us. I'm suspect to talk about Rio... imagine on January 20 during Elton John Concert at Copacabana Beach... my good this summer will be the top (and i'm at NYC  Sad )

I just come back from Rio to Sao Paulo and all the times i try to drink a beer at Copacabana, walk along the beach and at Urca... shopping at Barra and Rio-Sul shopping's... it's very bad that Sunday has only 24 hours.

Thanks for visit my city and wish to see you back one day!

Sure did, Felipe. I envy the people of Rio. I've been infected with a passion for bossa nova ever since. I've downloaded from ITUNES so many different versions of Agua de Marco and Garota de Ipanema. So you're relocating to NYC permanently? I hope it's another kind of fun. But then you'll appreciate Rio even more when you're there on vacation.
