19th part of the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon (concept): 0.495 kilometers in 6:47 minutes – completed on Thursday, April 14th 2016, in the quarter Lagoa (overall map). The actress Stella Miranda 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 lap actually belongs to the garden of my house. I live here in Lagoa in a place that is called Fonte da Saudade (“fountain of longing”) and that belongs to this segment. It is a bucolic historical place. There was a miraculous Fazenda of a Portuguese that changed in the course of years and nowadays belongs to the most exciting places of interest of Rio de Janeiro. It is the place where I go for a walk every day. It is a privilege to live in a town like Rio de Janeiro, in a cultural and banking centre of Brazil, with such a garden. It is my private resort which I enjoy every day.
