Brasil

Gente boa!

I woke up this morning to NPR radio playing the most amazing music from Brasil. I want to share this with you all, mostly those in Brasil, as I sense that there is a need in all of us for a bit of knowledge that not all from Brasil is bad news… this story made me have such saudades for you all, and for Brasil… viva!

This summer I learned a lot, mostly that Nepal is nice, California is home… but how much I miss Brasil. I will see you all when I can…

I am curious about the project “Schools without Borders” if any of you have any knowledge it would be most appreciated!

Abraços!
