Well I just got back from Rio de Janeiro this week and WOW! Just gonna start ya off with the video of the helicopter ride!
Stayed in a nice little AirBnB not far from Ipanema Beach. Got in late Thursday night and basically just slept. The first day I went to check out Copacabana Beach because of this…
A real yinzer… I know! Any way here is the real beach.
After the beach had lunch with some of my friends in town and saw some cool street art!
Sugar Loaf was cloudy but I did get to feed a monkey (Sagui) for the first time in my life!
Friday night I met back up with my buddy Sam and his wife Caty at the Hipodromo da Gavea racterack. Saturday we went to see Jesus!
#cristoredentor or as we say #christtheredeemer ! Honestly one of the most amazing places on the #planet. I’ve always had faith that #jesus has my back and today I literally felt it. Very moving. A must see for any #traveler. #jesuschrist #rio #riodejaneiro #diplolife #saturdayvibes #whitepigeon #blueskies #jesuscriato #errejota #god #sonofgod #happymemorialdayweekend #blessed🙏
Some more photos from being up there.
I can’t suggest any spot in the world more than this one!
Love me some panoramas!
The next day was the helicopter ride and wow wow wow!
Yeah I put my feet out! Only company in town that hovers in air and lets you do this!
30 of the best moment of my life. Rio has so much to offer. After this we just walked around town and met different people to talk to. Watching the sun set under Christ the Redeemer was awesome.
Then of course we found a party to go to over by the sugar loaf!
Just one of the best weekends of my life. Brazil seem to keep producing for them. The Sun really seams to be shining on me. Truly blessed.
The thing is… I never imagined my #life this way. I tell people I come from #pgh where you are #married, with a #mustache and atleast 2 #kids by 30. Literally the last 4 #generations of Joswiaks have followed that #tradition. And yet here I am somehow breaking the mold as the #sun sets in #Rio. #alltheroadswehavetowalkarewinding #diplolife #blessed🙏
