Before leaving us, my mother requested to be taken to Arpoador, an area in Rio de Janeiro formed by a big rock and the edge of a beach. “Arpoador” means “he who harpoons, who throws the harpoon to catch fish”. The place is said to have been so baptized because it had once been a privileged area for whaling.
