MODERN GUARUJ┴
 
       In 2003, through my friend Michael Nothenberg, I became acquainted with another resident of Guarujß, Mario Giudicelli. Mario was living in an apartment which faced the Asturias Beach and offered a panoramic view of the waterfront. He was kind enough to send some photos of the area which he had taken from his balcony. You can see examples of them on the page below.

VIEW TO THE NORTHEAST
     I think the little islet, which is seen to the left of the photograph, is the one immediately off of the Santos Dumont Memorial Park. It can be seen on the previous page.

VIEW TO THE EAST
     The Asturias Beach offers nearly two miles of white sand, very popular for bathing.
