I've created a project called Rent a Local Friend: Protected content
The idea is where freelance locals (journalists, fotographers, designers..) make themselves available to show visitors their local's favourite spots: Charming bars, restaurants, interessting shops, pretty panoramic views, pitoresque areas and scenes..little secrets
The city's very best for "travellers not tourists" who want to get an authentic laid back experience with a local It has been a great success here in europen capitals since its creation!
I just founded the chapter in Rio and am now wondering for nice means to disclosure about the "service". Any suggestions??
Of course, if you have any visitor friend, any foreign executive from your company with some extra time or anyone willing to learn about the real Rio from the cariocas...Do send us a message :)
