    Thank you Simone, Monica is going to be very happy with your remarks. The Portuguese Library is probably one of the underrated hidden gems in Rio, and most people don't visit them because it is not in the normal touristic path. I'm glad to know you we able to go there. Greetings from Rio, João Marcelo

    I'm glad you had the chance of doing this tour, since it covers many of the "hidden gems" Rio has to offer and that the majority of the tourists have no idea. Bruno aka BJ will be happy with your compliment. Happy 2019, João Marcelo
