Rio de Janeiro? I'll eat my hat!

Rio-451.jpgFinal word on the Boisdale party. Late in the evening, after most of the guests had left, I was accosted by an absurdly flirtatious woman who asked me if I'd like to go to Rio de Janeiro. (Would I like to go to Rio de Janeiro? Is the Pope Catholic?)

I won't bore you with the details (they were sketchy, to say the least) but I think I heard the words "conference" and "tobacco". Now, I don't know if this was a wind up, but if I find myself on a plane bound for Brazil later this year I shall (a) be thrilled, and (b) eat my hat. Watch this space.

Olá, como e você, você é atraente, ele desfaz aqui? Can you get me a ticket too? After dinner one could always reel off the 1970 Brazillian world cup team while having a very large cigar.

A small detail: it's Rio de Janeiro, not Rio de Janieiro. I used to live there, in the district of Gavea on the slopes below the Dois Irmaos - the twin mountain that appears in the centre of your photo.

Oops. I have now corrected it, thanks.
