    • Very short layover in CGH airport

      São Paulo Aug 19, 2015 at 9:08 AM

      It's been about 5 years since I last went to the CGH airport in Sao paulo, from what I remember, it's tiny, and from one end to the other it doesn't take too too much walking. Then again, it has been 5 years. The reason I ask is because I will have a short layover in CGH - about 2 hours - and hoping to meet a friend for a coffee AT THE AIRPORT. I am taking a domestic flight with TAM so I will have minimal hand luggage. Since I only have about 2 hours, do you guys think I have enough time to just go back out to the airport check-in area for a coffee ,and make it back past customs to board my transfer flight?

      For one, I wouldn't want to miss my flight (of course), second, if the time is too tight, I don't want to waste my friend's time in asking him to drop by the airport.

      Best Months for Travel In South America re Weather

      Rio de Janeiro Jul 15, 2015 at 3:24 AM

      Hi

      I put this question on the south America Forum but received no answers. Hopefully greater response via this forum.

      Looking at taking a 18 day South America tour during 2016. Destinations included:

      Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 5 or 6 nights ( includes 2 days pre tour)
      Iguazu Falls, Argentina 2 nights (arrive by air)
      Buenos Aires 3 nights (arrive by air)
      Lima, Peru 3 nights (arrive by air)
      Cuzco 3 nights (arrive by air)
      Puno 2 nights

      June or July or early August would suit us best, however we can travel any month either side. Will have a round the world ticket (from Perth Australia) and intend to also visit Europe & UK which we have visited many times. The important thing is to visit South America during the better weather.

      Appreciate all answers.
      Mike

Among my options for destinations is Brasilia(also Serbia,Egypt,Russia and Tunisia), which seems to be more appealing to me since i live in Greece and i think it will be once in a lifetime experience to go that far and also sounds quite exotic. Is it worth? is the weather good in July? Google search for images shows mostly buildings and lacks people and life is it as it seems?
