The short woman in the front is my friend Marilia. Marilia was born in Rio but lived 8 years in Boston in the United States. She loves the US and loves to meet Americans. In this photo she is seen with 4 Americans whom she escorted around Rio. She encouraged them to relax and enjoy the city. She took them to the Northeast fair that is open 24 hours per day and to local bars where few tourists go. She took them to the favela known as Rio das Pedras. The Americans had a good time dancing all night in the little community.
Marilia says hello from Rio.
