Houston-Lisbon-Rio de Janeiro

Greetings, By profession I am a Systems Engineer who specializes in Distance Education but by avocation I am an inveterate traveler. While I currently call Raleigh, North Carolina home, I have been known to make frequent visits to Brasil and Portugal (places where I have both many friends and family members). When not fixing computers or taking long flights, I write articles on distance learning, genre films and travel. My philosophy on travel is to make every trip an adventure and try, at least once during each visit to a foreign land, to go off the beaten tourist path and explore life as local. I love language and am able to converse relatively intelligently in four (English, Portuguese, Spanish and French). Generally, I travel to Rio de Janeiro about two times a year and I enjoy sharing my discoveries and experiences in that marvelous city with others.
