Response from Gisella:

Maybe Mr Homakov is not aware World Cup atracts millions of people and he decided to have his holidays in the FINALS Matches where all the crazy Argentinians where coming to town, besides all other nationalities, they were really many as they're our neighboohrs. Lapa was a place where all the football fans where gathering due to it's bohemian tradition. This is told at the announce but is NOT TRUE that just on Sundays is quiet; JUST on Fridays & Saturdays is loud since there is no World Cup all year long, best saying: can happen 40 to 50 years at the same country. You cannot take a period of WC as reality. It the biggest event i've ever seen in my life.
Although, as a young man, seems Mr Homakv enjoyed staying late for the night since the day we made the check out, we agreed at a late appointment at 12:00; he remained sleeping and did not let cleaning lady come in. I have to call and beg and then he started having his shower. When we could finally enter, i could see the apartment completely upside down, even took pictures from the mess. The futon bed which is a doubled bed was never opened and it fits 2 people besides the other beds we have at the apartment.
During World Cup, all the city was busy and for someone who is not a football fan, Rio should not be the place for vacation. Many times MR Homakov send me mails and I've told him about places around where he could escape from the TVs , with all details. my previous guests took all those tips, as you can read here at the comments, enjoyed every minute and were happy the be right on the sceen. Before Mr Homakov booked, i have told him i coudn't do a much lowered price as asked by him since WORLD CUP FINALS were the most busy time. So he knew it. Even tough, i have made him a very nice deal and later I'd offered my other listing for the same price in exchange, at my place in Leblon , best neighbourhood in town, but he never took it. I also told him World Cup would not cover all the extension of his vacation, just about 5 to 10% but the city was in the high season and lots of people stayed longer. As for WIFI, he told me the problem; before i could book the company for repairs, he'd changed my login and said was perfectly working. WIFI during world cup, with so many people in town, did not worked as normal times. And so the country; whose government decided for so many holidays due to important matches, so the foreigners could move easily and enjoy. It was a huge success and we had a high rate for a hosting country by FIFA although we brazilians paid high price, having the country work in just half period...
