Lá você é velho amigo.
Eu senti sua falta.
Eu perdi o jeito.
eu perdi o seu calor.
perdi o jeito que você me faz sentir … hmmm.
É bom ter você de volta.

Local Lens: Exploring Rio de Janeiro with @ticianaporto
In this series, we let local Instagrammers show you their favorite places to shoot around their hometown. To explore more of Rio de Janeiro, follow @ticianaporto on Instagram.
As the community of Instagrammers has grown and connected people across the globe, so too has our ability to share some of the personal, hidden and beautiful locations in our hometowns.
In the second of a two-part series of local guides to Rio de Janeiro, Carioca Instagrammer Ticiana Porto (@ticianaporto) shares her favorite places to capture in the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City). Ticiana has lived in Rio for 10 years and has challenged herself to take and share a different photo of the city each day since 2011.
To kick off your visit, Ticiana suggests cycling along the seaside, starting in the eastern beach community of Leblon. “Head west and you’ll reach the famous sidewalks of Ipanema and then Arpoador, a small peninsula with a great view. Stop for a photo and a coconut in Arpoador, then keep cycling along Copacabana Beach to the Leme neighborhood.” Not a fan of cycling? Ticiana also encourages visitors to stop and spend an afternoon on Ipanema Beach, drinking caipirinhas and admiring the fashions. “In Ipanema, everyone goes to the beach dressed and ready for their night out after.”
For some grand views of Rio de Janeiro, Ticiana has three favorite spots:
- See Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) atop Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf).
- From atop Corcovado, check out the view of Floresta Atlântica and the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas extending out to sea.
- Spend an afternoon in Santa Teresa and take in the view of Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf) from Parque das Ruinas (Ruins Park).
