Come on, people. Soccer or no soccer, a big time MSX event in Brazil would be extremely cool. Let's focus on that in this topic, shall we?

If security is any concern, Rio de Janeiro after starting the "UPP" program (Pacifying Police Unities) - had this year only, a reduction of 40% on crimes. Up to the World Cup, all "Favelas" will have UPPs. Also the army, and specialized trained cops will be on the streets making sure nothing goes wrong.

Problem is, some people is really envy of the money (and attention) being invested on RJ; the city is becoming a massive construction site, improving all over. It's so much being done, that's even hard to track it all down: there's a massive hydroelectric plant being made (so it won't have power problems caused by the consume spike), there are 'liquid hydrogen' fueled based buses being tested (all old buses should be replaced by 2016), the subway is being extended (you can already take the subway from several parts of the town and step out right besides Maracanã Stadium), Copacabana famous sidewalk is being restored (stone by stone), a huge museum (Museum of Tomorrow) will be built in an old part of the town which is being 'revived', and so on...

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beatiful cities in the world, with many attractions (so many that you can't see them all in just one week), and it's people are very friendly. Now it not only will have it's natural beauty, but also infra-structure (we have top of the line hotels and restaurants, accordingly to the latest Michelin Guide), security and everything that a city must have to properly recieve turists.

Oh - and we have some really hot women too Cool

To know more about UPPs: click here and here

Sorry, no link about the hot women in Rio :P

Well, I don´t belong to "MSX groups", but the main fact is that Brazil is not a so expensive country to travel to, and also many MSX uses that chat only through Internet could now meet in person.

C'mon slot, have you ever been to Stockholm?

And about the PPP, I have two movies to suggest:
"City of God" : http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1808439335/trailer

and "Elite Squad"
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0861739/

BTW, 95% of the police in Rio are NOT from Bope! :)
