I suppose if I actually want to consider this a blog and myself a writer I have to, you know, write. Even though my life here in Brazil may be an exotic mystery to most of you, as I began to cultivate routine, develop friendships and find favorite local hot spots it simply became life for […]Read more "The island of giant stone heads – part number the first"

The performance was a small pocket concert with maybe 120 select guests in attendance on the rooftop of the Le Lis Blanc store located on Rua Oscar Freire.

After a single week one thing is abundantly clear – this is not one of my typical travel adventures. In the past when I arrived in a new location I had a very clear game plan for what I was going to see, how I was going to make the most of my time, and how I […]Read more "“You are going to live São Paulo”"

This 7 week period reveled quite […]Read more "My Journey to Brasil"
