Cinelandia
4/27/2012 8:07:40 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

Our lunches at the northeastern restaurant weren't followed by naps as they were after our churrascaria feijoada (black bean and ham hock) blasts, mainly because downtown was a long, hairy distance from our home in Ipanema. You drove on the speedway at 70 km an hour, which in my VW Beetle felt like 100 miles/hour. You were stuck in a pack of similarly speeding cars and didn't pop out until you had passed the Yacht Club and rejoined city traffic. I once went, or tried to, go downtown to meet Renato for lunch but pushed by the pack, missed the turnoff, whizzed around the cloverleaf, and found myself headed back the way I came. I pulled off somewhere and paused in a side street to catch my breath before attempting the speedway once more. I made it next time around and arrived only slightly late. Renato often went to the office on Saturdays and knocked off for lunch. Sometimes we went to a movie before heading home. Cinelandia was not an area you wanted to explore after dark. Ah, Rio! I feel nostalgic for her crazy world, but would I return for a visit? For one thing, I would probably be teary as hell half the time, and I could not bear to drive on Epitacio di Pessoa for fear of seeing a certain house and spotting a dog's nose poking through the gate. That would be Jeff, our Doberman pinscher, about whom I wrote in "Carioca Dobie Derby," the dog show. Fifteen years in that city accumulated a lot of memories.
