Rio

Rio is an icon, however, I cannot say it convinced me at the very first time. I went there in April 2000 and the atmosphere was thick and tense, there were kids all around, under drugs, asking us for money at all time, you could not wander around really, pressure was on, gangs had invaded hotels in Copacabana recently, it was not fun. Then, step by step, I got used to the city and I enjoyed the different areas, the walks, the excursions, the cafés, I even knew how to drive around to go to visits. I felt much better than in Sao where I always felt small and lost
