ROYAL GERMAN VISIT IN RIO!!! :)



Michael und Leander, es ist schwer zu sagen, wie fantastisch Sie sind! In einem solchen einige Zeit konnte ich feststellen, wie positiv und wie groß sind Menschen, die Sie zu mir! Ich war sehr glücklich, Ihnen zu zeigen, die beste von Rio de Janeiro und auch die gut versteckten Geheimnisse der Stadt. Sie leben in meinem Herzen, es ist immer eine große Ehre, ein solches Reisenden wie meine besten Freunde! Vielen Dank!

THANK YOU GOOGLE!!!!

Well, I really have to start learning german because it seems that I wll have na excellent PUBLIC RELATIONS in this so dear country!!! :) Germany also gave me wonderful friends, I have friends in Fulda, close to Frankfurt, but now as you all can see, more friends from Germany I have…

Michael and Leander…

They came in the mood to see the depth of our culture…People’s way of life, life styles and gorgeous and scenic places!!!

Marta, the great HOSTER…welcomed then in her house that turns to be one of the most comfortable and classic penthouse in Copacabana, and she introduced me to Michael…

GREAT MOMENT BECAUSE I JUST KNEW SOMEONE WHO OWNS ON OF THE MOST BRIGHT BRAIN OF ALL OVER GERMANY, AND HE BELONGS TO THE MOST CHEERFUL AND HAPPIEST SIDE OF GERMANY, THE SO MAGIC SOUTH OF THE COUNTRY, FROM THE BEERSTADT MUNICH, OR AS THEY SAY, MÜNCHEN!!!

And his best friend and fantastic loyal traveler partner…Leander just joined the group. AS YOU ALL KNOW, I HAV E THAT JACQUES COUSTEAU spirit, and my both german friends are real travelers and very into adventurous destinations.

And I could show them the secrets of two magical cities together: RIO DE JANEIRO AND NITEROI

We spent most of our time in Rio, they wanted to see the SYMBOL OF THE SYMBOLS, the Christ on the top of Corcovado Hill, and we had a great time there; then we explored with details the magnificent forest of Tijuca; and we continued to the fabulous ocean corner of Joa, in the Itanhanga Mountains. Some people call it JOATINGA as well. But it was not enough for our curious appetite, then we decided to explore the wetlands of Marapendi with the expertise of Laerte, the boat man and my humble knowledge of brazilian fauna, and we saw a lot of animals, and the glorious moment…through the long mangrove roots in the water we say a BABY CROCODILE!!!!

We were so pleased to see so many beautiful places, but I wanted to show more of my land…We had very feel time to get to Niteroi before the sunset, but we had a task, a task to make everything possible to be in Niteroi before that, the traffic of 9 million people’s city was a real problem…but we finally reached the top point of Niteroi at the PARQUE DA CIDADE on time to see some last yellow colors of the sky that granted us such a BREATHTAKING VIEW OF RIO AND THE FANTASTIC CONITNUATION OF NITEROI’S COAST…

And as a grand finale, we had such a marvelous meal with the best of Brazilian Food in A Mineira where I go eating for more than 10 years!!!

I have that great will to make simple places unique places…and that is how I want Rio to be in your mind and in your heart…A SIMPLE RIO AND A SPECTACULAR RIO!!!!

Much more than keeping Rio in your mind, my task here is to make Rio be part of your soul!!!

AND TO MY GERMAN FRIENDS…I WISH YOU TONS AND TONS OF MASSIVE HAPPINESS AND I WISH YOU ALL THE SUCCESS IN LIFE, BECAUSE YOU ARE TWO GREAT HUMAN SOULS, AND YOU ARE THE ONES WHO REALLY MAKES BRAZIL A GORGEOUS PLACE TO VISIT AND LIVE!!!

Thank you very much for being ultra mega special to me!!!
