About Sue

 Sue – Rio’s Botanical Gardens
Hello. I’m a freelance journalist based in Rio de Janeiro writing about art and culture in Brazil, although must admit I’m drawn to eccentric, quirky tales.

 I started out as a dancer then fell into fashion modelling, which I stuck with as it was more lucrative than hoofing. I also had a fair stab at acting, but got fed up waiting around for casting directors. After almost 20 years of kicking, strutting and much ridiculous thespian larking about I now wait around for editors instead.

Life in Brazil is never dull and there are a ton of interesting characters, life situations and events playing out as I blog.  So watch this space to find out more…

    Hi, Sue,
    How´s everything going?
    Are you in Rio?
    I read on the papers yesterday that the Michelin Guide of Rio de Janeiro was finally published.
    Did it please you? Did you manage to put all those stores?
    I´ll try to have a copy as soon as possible.
    Keep in touch.
    Best to you,
