I am retired, my wife is a university teacher who weekly commutes to her work one hour's flight time away from Rio. My two daughters and my two grandchildren live abroad, one in Europe and the other in the US. I sail with friends almost every weekend and we both enjoy music, the opera and the theater. Weather allowing we ride our bikes in the park across the street. I have a fairly extensive library in English, French and Portuguese. I am bilingual in Portuguese and English and can also converse fluently in French.
