Hi, the guy in the picture is me, Robert Friedrick Martim Neto.
Easy "steps" to climb a palm tree
I joined WikiTravel on 7 January 2006 in order to share my travels around the world (and specially around Brazil). I normally do not keep notes of my trip and, thus, I tend to forget name of places (like restaurants, etc), but being a member of WikiTravel will force me to keep track of the things I do when I am abroad or travelling in my home country (I am currently resident in England).
I will try to update the places I have visited (I give a list below) as often as I can by adding pictures, comments, hints and ideas of places to go.
Probably the best way to reach me is through my e-mail mailto:email@example.com.
Also, I am almost 24/7 on my MSN. I do add a lot of people, but do not expect me to spend a lot of time chatting to you. My MSN is firstname.lastname@example.org
I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 12 November 1972. I lived there for the first 3 years of my life and then moved to Governador Valadares, Minas Gerais, Brazil when I lived with my grandmother for another 4 years before returning to Rio de Janeiro.
Back in Rio, I finished my studies until it was time to go to University. I did 2 semesters of Economics in Rio, then I moved to Germany and subsequently London in 1995-1996, where I for a period of 8 months. After that, went back to Brazil and stayed another year.
Finally, I was offered a job in London and also a place at the University of London. I moved to Cobham, Surrey, in 1998, where I have lived since.
I finished my graduation in Economics and Finance and then I did a Post Graduation in Finance at the same University.
