About Emma

Oi, hey! I’m Emma, I have dual citizenship for Brazil and the USA, and I have been living in Rio since 2011 (with a brief pause in 2012 to study in Scotland for 9 months). I am in love with this city.

About Praia da Joatinga

My favorite (not so secret) beach, tucked away in the neighborhood of Joá. If you go on a weekday, the beach will almost surely be just yours! Watch out for the tides though, because com high tide the beach disappears and you have to stay on the rocks! Take a cab to the gated community and just say you are going to the beach.
