Warning: The Consulate General of Brazil New York is full to the brim with visa requests! The earliest appointment we could get was three weeks away and when we got there, we were told they couldn't process the visa within a month. We were in danger of missing our flight!

They suggested we try Boston. Great suggestion! My daughter and I were on a bus that same day, walked in to the Boston Consulate the following morning (no appt needed), and was third in line. The clerk promised...

Hi there...
I'll be in Argentina shortly and still need to book a domestic flight. Can anyone inform me if it will be possible for me to buy an aerolineas argentinas ticket and pay for it in pesos in cash at one of the company's offices?
Just in case that matters, I'm not Argentinian.
Thanks,
Seb

Hi,
we want to cross Paso Pricas Negras next January. Does anybody have recent experiences on the pass?
We have found in a description from a few years back that Refugio Barrancas Blancas (~30-40km after Laguna Brava) is manned and that there is drinking water available (inside and outside).
Does anybody know if that Refugio is still manned and more importantly if it is true that there is drinking water available?
Many thanks in advance
Didi

Hi all,

I'm travelling to Brazil with my girlfriend in July/ August (UK) and was wondering if anyone had any general advice in regards to safety. I've read extensively but get mixed signals in regards to what precautions to take. Has anyone been recently (2014/15) and has any quality tips? F.Y.I we're flying to Rio (staying just one night), moving on to...

A friend and I will arrive in Huaraz, on Saturday, July 25 early in the morning and will be leaving Friday, July 31 in the evening. During this time we want to do the Santa Cruz trek.
Ive read about some good day hikes to acclimate, etc before the Santa Cruz trek.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be extremely helpful. We are pretty open to anything

Dear Forum, I would appreciate any information about how to manage this trip. First of all, i will travel from Lima to Piura (by bus, via Cruz del Sur) and then my next stop is Cuenca.
