Note from Last Year

"it just doesn´t get any better than this! went hang gliding this morning with liren. we became fast friends when we met last February and have really good traveling karma together for some reason. i mean, there was this amazing trip we took to barriloche when we first met and now, rio. today, we started with hang-gliding over a lush forrest, past beautiful mountains and a tuquoise ocean and i swear, no one should be allowed to check out without doing this first, it is such a fine, fine experience. then, we went to see the cristo, then we ate great, grilled street food while we were having a great walk, then, and then, as if that weren´t enough, we caught the bus back to our hostel in ipanema (yes, it´s true, we are the girls from Ipanema) and when we got off at our stop, there was this huge crowd all around this lake and suddenly we saw the greatest fireworks show ever within 4 minutes of stepping off the bus (right after i had said very quietly, ¨are there going to be fireworks...¨) we both absolutely love fireworks and had them in Barriloche too!" --Rose
