  1. Wow, Alex, you know a lot about Rio de Janeiro! It is definitely an amazing city to visit and it's huge. It has a population of over 5 million people. That is larger than the whole country of New Zealand! One day I hope to visit Rio. What about you? Would you ever like to visit a city as big as Rio?
