Photo Of The Week: View From The Top In Rio

In this month’s Local Mission, we’ve been exploring ways you can be a Tourist @ Home and re-appreciate the local gems in your own backyard. We’ve advocated for exploring the underground, wandering unfamiliar streets, and relaxing on a city beach, but there comes a time when you need to get the big picture! Our friends at Rio de Janeiro Urban Adventures reminded us to get out, go up, and gain a new perspective on the city.  From atop Corcovado Mountain near Christ the Redeemer, they snapped this shot of Rio looking spectacular with Sugarloaf Mountain in the distance. So go get high – high up that is – and experience your city from a different perspective! Be sure to share your adventures with us by tagging your Instagrams #UAmission for a chance to win a free tour – but hurry, this mission ends August 31!
