Cidade maravilhosa - The Wonderfull City

O Rio de Janeiro, foi uma cidade fundada entre os morros Pao de Acucar e Cara de Cao, por Estacio de Sa com a finalidade de se defender das invasoes francesas que partiam das ilhas de villegayon.
De la pra ca, muita coisa mudou, o Rio ja foi capital do Imperio, depois da Republica e hoje, e so a segunda maior cidade do Brasil.
O Rio sempre impressionou a todos pela sua beleza natural e pela simpatia de seu povo, os "cariocas", simpatia essa que nao existe igual em nenhum outro lugar do mundo.
Hoje apesar de tudo que se ve por ai, o Rio ainda é o melhor lugar do mundo para se morar, e um dos melhores destinos turisticos do mundo, porque poucas cidades, conseguem ter praias ta o lindas e ainda assim serem grandes metropoles, com tantas opcoes de restaurantes, cinemas teatros e etc.

Rio de Janeiro was founded between the Sugar Loaf and the Dog Face hills, with the finalitty, of defending the brazilian shoreline form the french ivasions.
Since then many things have changed, Rio was the Capital (D.C.), of the brazilian Empire, then, Caiptal (D.C.) of the brazilian republic, and nowadays is just the most beautifull city in the world.
Rio has always impressed people by it´s natural beauty and sights, and by the kindness and warmth of it´s people, the "cariocas" (people who are born in Rio), warmth that you can´t find anywhere else in the world.
Besides what you see on TV Rio, is still othe best place in the world to live, and one of best destinations for turism in the world, because no other city, has such beautifull beaches and natural sights, and also has the cultural options of a great metropole, such as nightclubs, theatres, cinemas, sports options and etc...

    olá, Thiago. Muito obrigado pelas suas belas páginas. Poderia satisfazer-me a seguinte curiosidade: o que são os pivetes que descreve como perigos? Serão as crianças da rua? É que em Portugal pivete é sinónimo de mau cheiro (fedor).
