    © AFP / by Carola SOLÉ | Davi de Oliveira Moreira, known as Sereio (merman in Portuguese), poses in his mermaid tail costume at Arpoador Rock on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on May 3, 2017RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP) - Davi Moreira looks like any other young Rio de Janeiro beach lover as he heads down to the Ipanema surf each week -- at least until he dons his blue mermaid's tail.
    Other bathers look on in astonishment as Moreira, 22, performs his weekly ritual. However, as part of a trend in Brazil and as far away as Holland and Canada, he is far from alone.
    "It's a lifestyle, a way of expressing my love and respect for the sea and this encounter between two worlds. When I'm in the water I feel like another person," he said while resting on rocks with his tail glittering in the sun.
    Like many who feel the need to dress up as mermaids and swim with the up and down motion of the broad tail, Moreira was inspired from childhood by Disney's popular animated movie "The Little Mermaid."

    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    "Blue" fins?? Is this the same camera they used on that stupid dress years ago?
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
