A few years ago I was in Rio de Janeiro and I was sold on the city which has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. My wife and I stayed with Bernt and his boyfriend and they showed us around and talked about life.
Now I'm trying to build the best tourist site about Rio de Janeiro, which is perhaps one of the world's most interesting places at the moment, in the near future the city will be involved in organizing both the football World Cup and the Olympic Games.
