Dear Reader, right now my big effort was selecting the funniest pictures to show you the best moments with this girl. And also enjoying the best memories of a real friendship. Yes, Marcone and me had a wonderful time with Abra, this is the secret of our passion for this work. Actually, I think it is not fair calling it as "work", it is a pleasure" that makes my living....
And this time, dear Reader, it will be not ME who will end this postings...it is Abra's own words that she wrote in a comment that not everyone knows how to read it so I am making it easy for you!!!
SO YOU CAN HAVE AN IDEA ABOUT WONDERFUL THINGS THAT MY WORK AS A TOUR GUIDE GENEROUSLY GIVES TO ME.
I GIVE YOU HAPPINESS AND YOU GIVE ME LIFE TIME FRIENDSHIP, THAT'S ALL IT IS!!!....
Ladies and Gentlemen - WORDS OF ABRA:
Just as I have left an impression on you, you have made quite the impression on me as well.
First, as a tour guide...it began with your initial response to my email after finding you on Trip Advisor - the email was SO friendly, welcoming, and funny...I knew I had to meet you and see what you were all about...
When I first met you and Marcone, I thought to myself..."oh boy, this is going to be a day that I will never forget!!", but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to gain such two amazing people that I consider family.
Our second trip in Rio was far from disappointing...even with the luggage issues, we made it work and it turned out to be a great opportunity for us to further our friendship and the students had an amazing tour of Rio.

I am honored to have made it to your blog and I am so touched by your words! I love both of you very much, my Brasilian brothers and I will see you again very soon - ai se eu te pego!!! ;-)
To be happy has no secrets...you just live life as it is your last day in life...Facing life from the positive side always, treat people exactly like you want to be treated, looking people in the eye and never be ashamed to show your feelings!
Being genuine, being honest, that is all...My work, my family, my friends make all that I am. And promoting and showing my land is my Mission in life.
So this is not only a tour guide that you will find...Be prepared to get a friend in Brazil!
MY ADORABLE ABRA HAS MORE THAN A FRIEND, SHE FOUND A BROTHER AND I AM SO MUCH PROUD ABOUT IT!!!
As I always end in my emails, LOTS OF LOVE,
