No one has a tongue as a TRADEMARK....Selaron does!!! My dream is seeing Selaron and Mick Jagger with their tongues out....THE MOST FAMOUS TONGUE OF ENGLAND AND THE MOST FAMOUS TONGUE OF BRAZIL!!!
Rio has many symbols...The Christ, Carmen Miranda, The Girl From Ipanema, Bossa Nova, Pelé, Ayrton Senna, Sonia Braga, Gisele Bundshen...and....Selaron...
When you think about the colors of Lapa...Selaron comes to your mind...he is a character, such a personality that gained the amazing prestige to say what he wants without concerning about consequences. He complains and critizice about everyone and we still love him!!!
He gave us colors and put all people from all Nations united in just one stair...Escadaria Selaron...he had decorated piece by piece of red tyles and some tyles from different countries...people who live there adopted the idea and start bring old tyles they had at home; then people from other countries started to bring tyles and Selaron pleasantly placed the tyles there!!!
Selaron is a friend of Rio, that is why he is a great friend of mine!!!
