Rio Pequeno denizen goes on holidays to Lençois Paulista-SP

João Luiz, a youngster from Rio Pequeno had a hard 2018, full on with studying mathematics and other subjects for his 2nd year at Colegio (Senior High School) so his aunties Lucia & Rute plus uncle Fernando thought it would be a good idea for João to spend some time far away from São Paulo and off he went to Lençois Paulista-SP... 

João took a bus on at Barra Funda Bus Terminal on Saturday morning, 5 January 2019 and arrived in Lençois in the afternoon. On that same night they went to see 'Aquaman' at a Shopping Centre movie-house in Baurú-SP. 

On the Sunday, 6 January 2019, they all went on a cruise of Rio Tietê at Barra Bonita-SP...

Rio Pequeno during FIFA's 2018 World Cup's Brazil x Serbia

I have a friend called Zé Luiz who lives on the East Side. We usually meet once a year to reminisce old times and catch up with whatever we have done in the last 365 days. Sometimes I go to Arthur Alvin and others Ze comes to Rio Pequeno.

This year, our meeting day coincided with a match between Brazil and Serbia for FIFA's 2018 World Cup straight from Russia. We thought it would be an awsome thing to go out while the match was being played so we could see the Streets of Rio Pequeno with as few people as possible...

Here are some of the photos we took on the afternoon of 27th June 2018

Rio Pequeno fashion...

As soon as you enter Rio Pequeno you can't help but notice this beauty parlour on the left-hand side of Avenida Rio Pequeno...

It's got two photographs on its walls... one of a handsome young men that one cannot help but know it is a kind of Northern European youth. The girl on the right is more ordinary with her dyed hair. 
As this beauty parlour is situated exactly opposite a busy bus stop I kept looking at the young man's photo and wondering who he could be... until I found his name and more of his photos in the Internet. 
This is one of the many busses that takes you to Rio Pequeno...
