Marcio Mizael Matolias live in the prestigious area of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), enjoy the fresh air and spend almost all the time on the beach, but do not pay any rent.
The secret is simple – 22 years ago a man to whom local residents gave the nickname “King of the Beach”, built himself a castle from the sand and settled there. 44-year-old Marzio loves when he is called the king, and with pleasure pose on the throne in front of his castle, not forgetting about the crown and scepter.
True, unlike his fellow monarchs, a man is forced to make any repairs in his castle with his own hands, and besides, regularly water this unusual house so that it does not wither and not collapse.
The castle of the king is not particularly striking in its dimensions, because it occupies only 3 square meters. Most of the interior is filled with books, since Marcio has three main passions in life – reading, golf and fishing.
A man who has no relatives, says that he lives happily in his solitude. However, on especially hot nights he is forced to leave the castle and go to spend the night with one of his friends, but he is not ready to change his house from the sand for anything else.
