    So, the freelance part of my job allows me to travel, and my client always gives me the opportunity to extend my return flight as long as I want. There's a chance I'm going to Rio next weekend and was thinking of just staying a few extra days. Aside from the beach, women, steak, and rum...has anyone ever been there or have great ideas of non-touristy places to go and things to do. I try to stay local if possible and avoid tourist traps.

    K, guess I'll just lock up all my stuff at the hotel and get drunk on the beach

    I'm extremely jealous. I've always wanted to go. Take lots of pics and post them!
