It's worth it !
So one night, before i bought ear plugs, my friend was snorting so loud, i couldn't fall asleep all night and in the morning i told him i`m going out and totally pissed went to Ibira Puera Park where i decided to sleep for 4-5 hours, I just found a bench in park and fall asleep, when i woke up, i felt quite all right, but closer to evening i started to feel funny, my friends were telling you`re so red, i said its no problem at all, im gonna be black in a few days, closer to midnight, my body started shaking, so i put some alcohol on it, i didn't really wanted to do it, but my friend suggested it to me. oh well, i must say i didn't sleep this night as well, my body was all cold and shaking, and i couldn't feel my legs, like i could move then no problem, but the feeling was as if i didn't have them.
Next morning my face was a huge red balloon, i got lots of laughs from friends with that. I was doing sunbathing almost every day to get tan, but after that episode all my efforts were lost for nothing, i lost all my color, and couldnt go to sun again for a week or so at all..I believe there are other ignorant people like me hehe, so guys buy sun protection there it costs 15$R, protection 4 is good for sunbathing, if you plan to stay a lot in sun, like all day use protection 15.
This happened in October, when sun weak by Brazilian standards, imagine what it feels like there in January
