Howdy y'all !!! I am originally from Dallas Texas, and I have been living in RIO for the last one year. Hmm between RIO and Dallas to be honest :). I work as a Director for an IT Consultant Company and my company is doing a project with an international team. I have started to hike in RIO and looking for a small group with people of similar interests. Let me know if anyone is interested to go for hikes in and around the city. I have hiked Urca, Tijuaca Forest and looking to hike Cristo soon. I speak a little bit of Portuguese being taking some classes on survival skills !!!
