embark From the Editor The Story Behind the Stories Here . . . and There # This issue is the second largest we’ve published in the past three years. One reason for the increase in number of pages is our story on Winston-Salem. This midsize North Carolina town, settled by the Moravians a couple of decades before the Declaration of Independence was signed, carries much of its Old World charm but gracefully embraces all that is new. As a community, WinstonSalem is committed to innovation and excellence in the arts. The city is home to one the nation’s premier hospitals (Wake Forest Baptist), medical research and teaching facilities (Bowman Gray), universities (Wake Forest), and arts conservatories (the University of North Carolina School of the Arts). If you’re unfamiliar with Winston- By Lance Elko Salem, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Our coverage begins on page 56. Our cover story (page 36) is on Rio de Janeiro, a destination that US Airways began serving only a few years ago. Now there are few empty seats on the daily Charlotte to Rio flights. In fact, in the months ahead, US Airways is flying a larger plane (an Airbus A330) to meet the demand. Once stricken with crime and poverty, Rio has transformed remarkably in recent years. The economy is more than robust, and Rio is charming, lively, beautiful, and safe. And the beaches are a must-see. You might even spot the girl from Ipanema. If you’ve never visited, check your February calendar — it’s Carnival time in Rio. COVER PHOTO BY ANDRÉ VIEIRA Follow us: @USAirwaysMag
