Alto da Boa Vista
Barra da Tijuca
12th part of the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon (concept): 0.899 kilometers in 10:10 minutes – completed on Wednesday, April 13th 2016, in the quarter Jardim Botânico (overall map). The costume designer Marcia Pitanga (*1956) lives in Rio de Janeiro (more about her).
Why did you choose this part to represent Rio de Janeiro at the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon?
This place presents a little bit the tropical rain forest. And I have very good memories of this environment, I find it very charming. As a child I played here. So this is my favorite place in Rio de Janeiro.
