Rio Part 4: Jumping off a Mountain

 
So in case we didn't get enough adventure in through scuba diving, the very next day we decided to jump off a mountain (above right) and hang glide down! Because it was the first beautiful sunny day in about a week, not to mention Good Friday (a work holiday in Latin America) the place was packed and we spent hours waiting around. However, my guide or "pilot" was great and it was SO MUCH FUN.  The craziest, and really only scary part, was getting into the air. We had to run off the ramp, below, as fast as we could and into thin air. As the guide said, my only job was to run. If you don't run, you just sort of fall at the end of the ramp. That was all the motivation I needed!  



We stuck the landing!
