A moonlit version of Rio de Janeiro, clearly showing this city has a very real heart – it puts my mind in dream mode. That’s to say, daydream mode, which means that my mind first and foremost begins to calculate and estimate. For some reason my daydreams always seem to have to be accurate and realistic before they can become magical. That heart over there sparked a thought and now I need to determine what the size of it is (which leads my mind to trail off to the album title ‘Does my heart look big in this’ from where it goes on to that early nineties music video of a girl leaving her house one morning with an enormous heart she can barely carry around but which shrinks with every human contact she makes until she comes home at night with a regular sized heart, a bearable heart, literally – but all that only briefly). Taking into account the beach line, the mountains and the buildings my mind concludes the heart is big enough. So, we’re off.

Imagine, if you will, hiking all along the coastline of that heart of Rio. Such an endeavour would actually bring you into contact with the heartbeat of that great city, wouldn’t it? It would bring you past so many of its districts, quarters and favelas, I imagine. You would meet so many of its people, see, hear, sense and taste so much of its life and all it holds. Not to speak of that what always happens when you set out on such an adventure: your fantasy may help in conceiving and organizing it, but it won’t be able to provide you with even a glimpse of what the trip itself would actually have in store for you, now will it?!. Oh boy what a marvel, I wish I could have set out yesteryear.
