Graffiti Art in Action on Ladeira Ary Barroso

There was not much to look at. Check for yourself…

We have been approached by UPP in Chapéu Mangueira & Babilônia to participate in this project. What started as a kind request to donate 3 sprays ended as a revitalisation of 40 metres of the street.

We helped with the plaster finish of the wall. Then we organized the paint of basic background color. Then Luiz together with us spent some time buying material for the big day. The big day was marked for saturday, august 2nd. We were hoping and praying for the weather to help us and it did. We woke up to a great sunny day.

Soon after 9am graffiti artists from all around Rio de Janeiro metropolitan area started to apear. We had friends coming from Campo Grande, Bangu, Jardim América , Botafogo, Copacabana, Niterói, Rocinha. The big thank you goes to Luiz and his crew, Wark da Rocinha, Miguel FernandezVitor VGSPandroRodrigo Eok, Daniel Frickmann, Tis FzoCrew, and Jean Poul Livrement.

Without you this would not be possible. THANK YOU!!!

Have your country represented.

We were looking for a good story about why the flags of different counties are placed outside of hotels and hostels. We only found a mention that they can represent either the countries that the chain has hotels in or they can represent the countries of the guests. In our case, as you know, in our reservation email we comment to future guests that we collect flags of our guests’ countries. If they want be represented, all they need to do is bring a flag.

Would you want to have your country represented? As you see, in this case, size does not really matter, and we have space for all formats. Bring it.


What is more, Ester uses the flags to study geography and history, as you can see in the photo. So come on, bring it … :-)

Safe travels,
