Hi Erin,

We were in Rio in 1991. Since that time I've had friends visit there who were also robbed and hassled in approx 1998/1999.

My friend who lived there, was dark skinned and had black hair and although she was jewish/caucasian, she looked very spanish/south american. Like you, she blended well and didn't get too bothered.
