"I was born in Rio." Isn't "a cidade maravilhosa" referring to Rio de Janeiro?

yes, here in Brazil we say "wonderful city" (cidade maravilhosa) as "Rio de Janeiro", this is because of a carnival's song (marchinha de carnaval) from 1935 by André Filho

Don't use marvellous, an obvious and correct solution - supported by the hover hints. She obviously used maravilhosa when she only wanted to say "great". I bet they even accept "nice".
