My name is Stephanie Liu and I am a young professional working in business in Los Angeles. I am planning a trip to Rio starting on Friday, August 31 to Monday, Sept 3. I came to Rio a year ago and loved it and would love to experience Rio again with a local! I have a place to stay but during the day would love someone to show me around. Last time I wasn't able to Ilha Grande and would love to go if the weather is ok.

I am trying to learn Portuguese (my company does a lot of work in Brazil) and would the opportunity for a great cultural exchange to practice Portuguese with someone too. If anyone is free at all to meet-up that would be great!

Does anyone have any tips on how to get to ILha Grande? I was interested in going Scuba diving--I arrive on Friday at 9:30am at the GIG airport but didn't know if I would have enough time to go diving if I were to go straight there from the airport on Friday. Thoughts anyone?
