She is absolutely special, Diana is a very experienced tour guide and a wonderful friend. I know her for less than one year and I am sure our friendship will last centuries and centuries, for many reasons...First because she is the kind of a friend who no matter where you are or how you are feeling, she will be always there anytime you need!!! Her assistance as friend and her work as a tour guide is something from another planet!!!
I met her in one of my weird places where I have my tours...weird, I explain, it means very unique and unusual places where very few people go, not to mention, "tourists". So this place where I saw Diana for the first time is a very local place, and the neighborhood is something that makes every visitor falling in love with Rio...
IT IS WEIRD BECAUSE I TAKE MY GUESTS TO A "SHOPPING CENTER" exactly in the first day we meet...so you might be thinking...why on Earth should I take my very first time guests to a shopping center????
But there is always a special reason...I hate to write about it because now everybody will know WHAT TO DO IN THIS MALL....
Okay, but I am telling you now...right behind this mall there is an enormous area where we have our wetlands, right in the back of a populated district called BARRA DA TIJUCA...This place is a complex of several lagoons and many islands...It is a mangrove area full of wilderness and fantastic houses in the islands...
So coming back to the topic...I SAW DIANA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS SHOPPING CENTER...
She used to take care of a very charming café in the mall and I always stop there for some coffe which is the main source of my energy, hehehehe :))))
Everytime I was there we always had great conversation about everything and I found out that Diana is a tour guide too, since then, I trusted her many guests...it happens always when I am busy, and Diana simply provided the best of Rio and just like me, she knows all the great secrets of our hidden treasures that make Rio more than a travel destination, she makes Rio as easy and pleasant as your own home!!!
SO DIANA IS PART OF MY TEAM!!!!
Everytime I recommend her, you can be sure that you will be in great hands!!!! She has a fab english and she is able to make your life easy in this fantastic city of Rio. She also has a very nice car with good space for 4 people; and we can arrange transportation for any one who comes to the city!!!
WELL, NOT ONLY THIS WOMAN IS A SPECTACULAR TOUR GUIDE, I ALWAYS SAY THAT SHE IS MY "FEMALE VERSION" WHEN TOURING WITH MY GUESTS!!! HAHAHAHAHA :) but she is one of my best friends, she is someone I am sure I can always count, she is my sister and my great advisor.
I am honored to introduce Diana in my blog and I register here Diana's expertise about Rio and I make it public how much I admire that wonderful person!
THANK YOU DIANA!!!! :)
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE A BRILLIANT TOUR GUIDE AND YOU ARE ONE OF THE BRIGHT PEOPLE WHO MAKES RIO EVEN MORE EXCITING AND EXTRAORDINARY!!!! YOU ARE THE ONE WHO REPRESENTS THE BEST OF BRAZIL!!!!
YOUR FRIEND FOREVER,
RAFAEL TORRES LOPES
As you can see, visiting Rio with Diana is like touring with Rafa...she is marvelous!!!
