My little corner of Rio

Should have used Google Earth instead of Google Maps for better resolution, but this will do...

Notable Locations marked on map:

  • 686 (say: Meia-Oito-Meia) is the restaurant I eat at nearly day.
  • Speed Queen is a convenient full-service laundry, though used only when absolutely necessary. Since I started running, socks run out faster than underwear.
  • Vem Q Tem is a great little Kiosk (ou quiosque). I met more diverse peoples here than anywhere else in Rio. It is owned by Dudu (an unfortunate nickname that everyone named Eduardo uses). Dudu is also in the band Quilocura, is in law school, has two kids, and is learning English. He either is lying or doesn't sleep or both.
