Other Travel News from this week:

I also had an embarrassing experience while I was in Rio de Janeiro. I rented an apartment to stay in for the week, and it was in a pretty old building. The owner of the apartment told me to be extra careful using the keys to the exterior door. Even though I had been given a warning, I still managed to put the key in the wrong way, and it got stuck in the door. So I had to fix the lock!
