Why did you choose this part to represent Rio de Janeiro at the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon?
In 1946, just shortly after the war, I arrived here with my family on a ship called Aldabi from Rotterdam, from Holland. Many years later I found out that Aldabi is a name of a star, and here I have made my life.
