My name is Ryan Johnson, and I'm going to be spending most of 2007 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, studying the bus system on a Fulbright Scholarship.

But first, I will travel down to Brazil. I will leave on January 8 and have a plane ticket that abuses the layover rules and has week long stopovers in Guatemala, Costa Rica, Columbia, Peru, and Chile. Finally I will drop off my girlfriend Vanessa, who will be traveling with me, for her semester in Buenos Aires, and I will get to Rio just in time for Carnival February 17-21.

It's going to be a big year. I hope to use this blog to post insights and tell interesting stories.

I had a previous blog from Chile that dealt with my semester and summer there.

I can't wait!
