We were lucky enough to book a last minute Helicopter tour with @ultrapilot on @airbnbexperiences, brought our friend Jorge (@batista_preto) with us as a surprise, and it was one of the most touching and memorable experiences I’ve ever had. Not only were we able to share a first helicopter ride, but the views were amazing and I would definitely suggest the tour to anyone while in Rio. πŸ‡§πŸ‡·πŸš

This beautiful 96-year-old lady was so shocked, happy, and shy when I asked to take a photo of her. Here she is experiencing all those emotions. ☺️❀️

The abundance of greenery amongst the city infrastructure and even within the favelas is so gorgeous. πŸ˜πŸŒ΄πŸŒΏπŸŒ±πŸƒ

This is Carmelita, grandmother to our amazing local liaison (and new friend) @batista_preto. She represents the side of Brasil that I've seen and fallen in love with. Brasil isn’t just fancy beaches and people in thong bikinis and colorful picturesque umbrellas ... it’s locals who don’t speak a lick of English dancing to funky music on the streets in the middle of the afternoon with a beer in hand. It’s old men smoking cigars and playing cards with their friends. It’s kids cheering their little brothers and sisters on while they play soccer. It’s gangsters who are wary of your presence but will smile back at you and wave if you only smile and say hello first. It’s sweet grandmothers sitting on their porches reminding you to protect your belongings. It’s a place where people truly care for one another, and we have a lot to learn from them. So much love for you Brasil. πŸ‡§πŸ‡· Huge thank you to @volunteerinrio for opening this side of the country up to us.

If you take a close look at the far left of this photo, you see high-rises by the beach in the obscured distance. That's where the tourists typically go. But this photo was taken in a favela (Rocinha to be exact) where only about 5% of the tourists go. The rest of you 95% are seriously missing out.

Today we had the true pleasure of exploring Rocinha, South America’s largest favela, with Jody of @favelaphoenix. While the media has done a spectacular job of painting a dark and menacing picture of this place, nothing could be further from the truth. Drug trafficking, shootings and other gang-related occurrences do actually happen here, but that is not the only story, nor is it the whole story. You would be doing yourself a severe disservice by allowing the media to dissuade you from connecting with this part of Rio while in Brasil. It is rich with culture, history, and a sense of community that you won’t find in many other parts of the world. The people are hard working, full of smiles, and more often than not, happy to let you photograph them - like this man (and his cat) right outside of his home in an alleyway. To give a bit of context, there are 26 subdivisions within Rocinha alone, and only 4 of them are considered dangerous. So long as you know what areas to avoid and how to properly pay the locals their due respect (exploring with a local who knows the area and the etiquette is VERY highly suggested), you will feel a sense of welcome, belonging and comradery that is only birthed when a community is forced to rise out of struggle together. // Something also important to note: there was a pretty big shootout in Rocinha today - we heard hundreds of gunshots (including machine guns) and needless to say, it freaked us out. But Jody made us feel safe despite it all, with his extensive knowledge of the favela's current circumstances and of the safe passageways throughout. Knowledge will always be much more powerful than fear.

One of my favorite things about taking pictures wherever you go, is being able to look back on your archive of photos at any point and relive the moments that you’ve captured. I was taking a moment to reflect on my year and I stumbled upon this image. This time last year I was with my favorite human @emil.walker, roaming around the beautiful island of Malta, admiring its incredible terrain and dynamic topography while stopping to eat good food in between. We made breakfasts and dinners together in our magical @airbnb and celebrated ringing in our first NYE together, just the two of us. It was one of the most romantic times of my life. Fast forward to today, I am now thousands of miles away from my favorite human, but it’s ok. Because I’m celebrating with him in a completely different part of the world in just over a week, and tonight, I ring in the new year with some of my closest friends in my beautiful hometown of San Francisco. We are truly blessed. For the different ways we connect with our loved ones in this lifetime, for the way our lives evolve, for the changes we undergo that make us who we are. When I look at this photo right now, I don't care about its imperfections. I don't care that the sun flares take away from some of the detail in the rocks. All I see when I look at this photo is how blessed I am to be able to see so much of this world, to be able share my life with my loved ones and with you; and I am reminded of how blessed we all are to simply exist on this beautiful planet, and to have one another. Wishing you all a good NYE tonight, and a blessed 2018. Let’s all dare to live the life of our dreams. Love you all, and Happy New Year. β€οΈπŸ˜šβœ¨πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ
