Realy, on Sundays the road from Leblon (1st Beacht) to Aterro do Flamengo (last beach) stay closed to walk and ride by bike only, but there is also a year I dont go to Rio de Janeiro.
Most of my family lives there, but I leave in a town called Itamonte, 250 km far from Rio de Janeiro and 300 km from São Paulo.
I dont like big cities.
Much noise, trafic, violence....
Here we have clean air, clean water, waterfalls, rivers, creeks, natural pools.
The poeople are more simple.
I love the neigborhood cities: Itanhandu, Passa Quatro, Pouso Alto, Alagoa, Baependi and Aiuruoca.
So many waterfalls and natural beauties.
