Rio de Janeiro

The Wonderful City

Welcome to Rio de Janeiro, known as "The Wonderful City". I don't know for sure what is most wonderful about it. But truth is you feel its energy the moment you arrive there. The city is really blessed by a combination of urban with Nature, and its free-spirited people - the 'Cariocas' - add that much color to it. Hope you enjoy a little bit of how I see my city, and find it as wonderful as I do.

    Rio is beautiful. I mean, from a tourist's perspective and looking at the beauty in the nature of Rio. 500 years ago, Rio must've been paradise. Now, depending on where you are, it can be the vision of darkness. I lived in Rio for seven years of my life. I've been robbed countless times, they stole my car two times, and I have witnessed numerous gunfights. I was born and raised there, and I love my heritage, but I don't think it's a wonderful city in reality. Great story, and sorry if I offend.

    @EndlessRoadTrip No offense taken at all!! As most metropolies, Rio de Janeiro has its problems, such as violence, drug traffic, etc... But that doesn't mean the city has lost its beauty, or even that it's only about that. I've lived here most of my life, and (call me lucky) I have never been robbed. That doesn't make me any less aware of the danger around me in the city... But it's a little about the perspective you have of things. Aside all the problems, I'm still very proud to live in my Wonderful city.

    @fhtanaka That's wonderful! You have a better mindset than most of my friends still living in Rio, and I applaud it! Boa tarde então pra você aí!

    @EndlessRoadTrip 😉 Nem sempre é maravilhosa, mas ainda há muita beleza nela. E como todo bom brasileiro, não desisto nunca. Quem sabe um dia... 😉😉 Bom final de semana

    Pois é! E e isso que nós precisamos: não desiste. Pessoas desistirem de tomar conta da natureza do Rio são justamente a razão porque algumas partes estão um lixo. Deus abençoe!

    Linda seleção da nossa cidade. É bom ver agrupadas as fotos que, muitas das vezes, fazemos sem pensar no conjunto. 😘😘
