Glauco Brasil

Glauco makes leather maps and designs. My mom bought a large map, so I picked it up at their house in Cabo Frio and had lunch with him and his wife. He also built his own house near the beach in Cabo Frio. You should buy a map from him just to hang out in Cabo Frio…

Where you can find him: the “Hippie Fair” every Sunday in Rio de Janeiro by the mêtro station General Osorio.
