Assunto:  Hang out vs Go out
 
Mensagem:  Thanks, Thiago.  I already do.

Oh, you can help me right now!  A Carioca friend used the expression "contra mao" to describe getting to a friend's house in Rio.  I understand "contra mao" to mean "one-way, wrong way".  But that isn't what she meant.  I think she was saying "hard to get to, difficult to reach".  She wanted to go to a party, but at the last minute her husband had to work, her two daughters went shopping, and she had to take two buses to reach the party.  Can you clarify for me?  Thanks!  I'm sorry I can't give you more context.  I don't remember the exact wording of the sentence.
