Two men training boxing at a park in a beautiful seaside town Olinda, Brazil

The town was named Olinda, because colonists said "Oh, linda!" (Oh, beautiful!) when they came to this seaside town for the first time from Portugal. I enjoyed walking and discovering new charming corner and street every day, and I almost forgot in which country I was. One day, these men were boxing in a small park. While I was watching their muscles in full play, I realized that I was in Brazil, the land of passion and physical beauty.
