Rio Airport is 28.5 C
It doesn't look like there is air con.
TAM is ridiculous. Flight is delayed, the gate number changed randomly from 33 to 31 to 32 and now is 30.... finally settled on 32... Perhaps TAM hopes the confusion will cause the passengers to give up on their flight.
The airport is like a tropical rain forest, 28C, haven't they invented air-con yet? Rio is a nice city, all they need to fix is their transport system, both land and air....
20:54:38 They are giving candies to passengers now, it works, I am less agitated now.
21:51:52 Flight expect to arrive at 10:00pm, according to my GPS.
