We visited Rio de Janeiro to attend a friend’s wedding. The groom is one of my best friends from college and his lovely bride, a stunner/magnificent human from Brazil. We visited just as winter was winding down which was a nice time to go to avoid tourists. We had always wanted to visit Brazil, but being able to go on this trip that was arranged by my friend and his wife was unlike anything we could have imagined. This trip was always going to be magical - friends were traveling in from near and far to celebrate this wonderful union- but we had no idea what delicious fun Rio had in store for us.
