I met Carlos Joao Sales 10 years ago in SF. He told me he was moving back home to start his own business as a tour guide. In 2004, I traveled to Brasil for a month long vacation. I had a ball. I arrived ahead of a social group that would join Carlos and I for 10 days. Carlos had already picked me up at the airport and checked me into a lovely apartment with everything I needed at a very reasonable rate a block away from Copa Cabana Beach. He visited me everyday to help me navigate the city. When the group arrived he was our constant guide from Rio to Salvador for the next 10 days. Nothing was too difficult for Carlos for the 16 Americans. I and we had the time of our lives with so many activities from local entertainment to boat trips and a Pride celebration in Bahia! After we returned to Rio the group left but I stayed for another week. What a personable guide Carlos is, I have returned to Brasil in 2006, 2009 and 2011 to enjoy his guidance and direction again and again and am planning a return trip in 2013.
