The picture was taken many many years ago after the song “The girl from Ipanema” was created. Now she’s an older woman and she’s dancing with her grandson at a street fair or carnival. She is still as beautiful after all these years! They look very happy. She has a smile on her face. The whole family is there, including the 2 great grandchildren who are in the background. They are watching their dad dance with his grandmom. The road is blocked off so that the kids will not run into the street. The people at the top are the musicians and they're trying to figure out what song to play next. They might be in a different country. Maybe Cuba. Or they might be in Brazil, South America where the song was written. There has to be food somewhere. Maybe rice and beans, tacos, empanadas, or black beans. In Brazil, they call it rice and peas, so maybe it’s rice and peas. Whatever they're having is probably good.
