Today's Carioca is a born native of the famous city of Rio de Janeiro.
Luís Cláudio stumbled upon Meet a Carioca Monday when he offered to sell myself and a friend some peanuts at a Leme beach kiosk.
While a little shy for the camera, Luís was a good sport. I always ask permission to take a picture. You never know who believes the camera can steal the soul.
Anyway, the question we asked Luís was:
Q. What makes Rio de Janeiro such a great city?
A. The people.
I'm going to have to totally agree with the man on this one! However, I'm still waiting for a long-winded participant. Maybe we'll have better luck next week.
