Magnificent! A cathedral that looks like a Mayan temple when mirrored. A playground for Greek athletes that simply refuses to look like the basketball court it is. A collision of cultures and ages, bubbling up from the modern lava of concrete, metal and glass. And amidst it all, there she walks, immaculate, cocksure, feminine, strong legs, vulnerable heart, proud, unyielding, hard foot soles, light pace, tough hands, tender touch, sharp brain, romantic mind, the sun ánd the moon.

Where does she come from, where does she go?
This is not for us to know.
I believe that if everything around her were exploding, she’d still walk like that.
Away, seemingly oblivious of her surroundings, or perhaps for real, oblivious of her surroundings.

Look at the distance between us and her. From the size of the buildings we can deduct how far away she actually is. Still we can read her posture, her being, from here. A Mayan princess in Greek attire, passing through history, through time and through us, smack in the middle of Rio de Janeiro, caught within the umpteenth of a second. I repeat: magnificent!
