Why did you choose this part to represent Rio de Janeiro at the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon?
On this segment one can see a lot of … First of all we are between sea and rocks, and this is the best of nature for me. I love stones, mountains and the sea, and here in Rio we got all of this abundantly. Secondly because the path really enters the sea, it is brilliant, it seems that you are running across the sea. And from here you are able to see the figure of Christ, the Dois Irmãos, you see the Pedra da Gávea. This is a corner of Leme, I live in Leme. It is an emotional place and stands for the nature of Rio.
