Although I speak only Spanish, English and Portuguese, I would say I know how to speak all languages considering the fact that I am able to "Welcome" anyone, independently of his nationality. So, be very... Very Welcome to my Home!
I do like to be with People and love to receive Friends and guests. Since I came to this Planet I realized that I had two "Shortcuts": Through Pain or Love! That's why I decided to be an Easygoing Person, True-hearted, Funny and Optimistic.
Everybody is welcome my home and I do my Best, so that you feel as if you were in your own Home and I`ll be "available" 24h to you for any emergency. Most of the time I`ll be at home, but practically "invisible", but you can count on me 24h a day.
I`m an English Teacher, Psychologist, retired Military (as an Air traffic Controller) and a Sculptor. At the moment I work as a Tourist Guide and make studies on Environmental Education.
About Rio de Janeiro:
Walking through the streets of Rio is to relive the history of Brazil. The old buildings of the city center and surrounding areas carry itself a reminder of the country's greatest moments.
In January 1502, the second Portuguese exploratory expedition, commanded by Gaspar Lemos, arrived at the Bay of Guanabara. Spotting what for him was the mouth of a river, gave the name to the region of Rio de Janeiro.
But it was only in 1565 that Estácio de Sá founded the city, baptizing it with the name of São Sebastian of Rio de Janeiro, in honor of the then King of Portugal, Dom Sebastião.
Downtown neighborhood is well known for its museums and historic buildings. The flat is right next to several important districts: 5 blocks from Arches of Lapa, the famous Bohemian district, Santa Teresa, Flamengo Beach (10 min by bus), Botafogo Beach (15 minutes by bus), Copacabana Beach (25 min by bus), (25 minutes by taxi) to the International Airport and (10 min by taxi) from Santos Dumont National Airport. Staying downtown it`s a privilege for those who wish to spend their time to breathe art on visiting the churches and the cultural centers. I’m looking forward for your visit!
