Packing for 3 weeks in another country isn't the simplest of things, so I took it upon myself to do a little inventory at the office the day of my trip. Proactive eh? The overnight long-haul to Rio de Janeiro as I have now learned is a hop, skip & a jump from the bustling streets of New York City. A race to paradise is what I'd like to coin it. From the moment I left the Silkstone offices I began capturing this once-in-a-lifetime trip during the World Cup.
