Charming Rio

The charming and cultivating city of Rio totally captured my heart. Rio is not my home but somehow I felt like at home. It took me back all the way to my childhood growing up in Tyre, Lebanon where I spent almost 18 years of my life there. In Tyre, I used to play soccer with my friends almost daily on the Mediterranean sea. When I visited Rio for the first time, I felt the instant connection to home through beach life, soccer, food, and sunsets.
