Hi, my name is Jose R A Duarte and I am the author of this website.
www.RioHere.com is the english version for the longstanding and successful website www.RiodeJaneiroAqui.com wich was originally written in portuguese language.
So, I think you have a question... I guess it is "What is the meaning of the word "aqui". It is a portuguese word, which means "here".
Here in this site you can read my personal views and descriptions of
picturesque sites to see and interesting thing to do in Rio de Janeiro City and surrounding
areas. I also write about the arts, architecture and history of the city.
I was born in Brazil, and I have been living in Rio de Janeiro City for about 35 years now.
I only write about what I have visited and I use my own photos in the articles. I also have many books about the history and iconography of Rio de Janeiro City, that I use as a reference as well to write articles about architecture, culture and history of the city.
website do not offer any kind of service.
