We walked through this military school and hiked up to the historical fort in the afternoon heat. The flag in the first pic is the same as in the second pic, but what is not pictured is the sweat and exhaustion that was present between the two. You’re welcome for that. If you squint, that’s Christ the Redeemer again, way behind the flag. #anythingforascenicview (at Forte Duque de Caxias)

We got amazing views of Rio from Sugarloaf last night. My poor phone is probably just about out of memory just from all the pictures I took.  (at Pão de Açúcar)

Our final #gtmba company visit this morning was to the multi-national energy company, Petrobras. Headquartered in Rio, it’s the largest company in the Southern Hemisphere by market capitalization.   (at Universidade Petrobras)

Rio street performer, and new personal friend of @ajfloyd2013. Literally a street performer; he jumps into intersections when the traffic light turns red and juggles for the waiting cars.  (at Ipanema)

The movie studio and sets on Rede Globo’s Projac production center, which covers 1.65 million acres, were incredibly impressive today. The #gtmba students and I were very fortunate to see all of this since it’s not accessible to the public. Now I just need to watch a telenovela to see if I recognize any of the sets and actors we saw on our visit! (at Central Globo de Produção (Projac))

Very interesting visit with the #gtmba students today to Rede Globo, the second-largest commercial TV network in annual revenue worldwide. We learned a lot about the global and local media markets, and we even got to tour the studios where the famous telenovelas are filmed.  (at Central Globo de Produção (Projac))

Proof that I actually spent some time on a beach after the work was finished today! Oddly enough, the wifi was stronger on the beach than in the hotel. :-/ (at Posto 9)

If you ever have the chance to drink caldo de cana, do it. They run large pieces of sugar cane through a press and then serve it to you fresh. Add some lime, and it’s unbeatable. The pastel de frango (chicken pastry) was also pretty delicious.  (at Praça General Osório)
