Don't need to hope no more, hotels in Rio are *already* expensive because
of the World Cup renovations (is impossible to get a hotel in Rio for less
than 100 USD/night) and I do believe the price will double in 2014 and only
drop after 2016 (after yet another "let's-rob-the-people-and-impress-
foreigners" event)

livre acesso ao somatório de todo o conhecimento humano. Ajude-nos a
construir esse sonho. <http://wikimedia.pt/Donativos>*
