When our visitors come here, they do not waste their time exploring the city centre of the City...What a ghastly mistake!;) By not doing it, they simply ignore the fact that there are communities in Rio de janeiro that still keep a life style of many years ago, a slow rhythm that tells you how Rio was about 100 years ago. Morro da Conceição was one of the first settlement of Rio de Janeiro. The Fortress there dated 1743, but there are some facts registered way before 1743. Close to downtown it is still one of the fewest places that you can sleep with your door open.

Like what I was doing this saturday, August 26, 2006, when I stopped for a little chat with two nice ladies who was simply enjoy life talking in their front door. something unusual in our busy life today!;)

In Rio de Janeiro, my friends, everything is possible!;)
