I LOVE watching the Summer Olympics and can't wait until August. Here's the trailer/commercial they've been showing on NBC.
Lately I've been obsessed with Brasil (guess I jumped on the bandwagon a little late). Here's an article from Grio.com that added to my obsession. lol
Have you ever thought about how many cities in the world you could call a complete city? What I mean by that is a city that provides access to beaches, nightlife, culture, nature, great cuisine and adventure.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the few cities on the planet that checks all those boxes.
During my sixth visit to Rio, I headed west to Sao Conrado to hang glide. I met my instructor, Klaus, at Sao Conrado beach to get my co-pilot license, and then we jumped in his SUV and rode to Pedra Bonita, the launch point 1,700 feet high. The view from Pedra Bonita is marvelous on a clear day, and the mild wind gave us perfect flying conditions. Up until this point, I was very confident about flying, but when Klaus started to give the safety instructions, my heart rate increased a little. Klaus said, “No matter what you do, don’t stop running.” And as easy as that sounds, I was praying that I wouldn’t freeze up and stop running.
