Thanks for the kind words, theyare developing quite nicely, i got a couple of them congoing and stuff too, so im letting them do what they want to do. Question, are you brazilian or just a big fan of the beijaflor school of samba? or neither?

Woah! Amazing! Hahaha, it feels great to have another fellow Brazilian as well. Its a dime a dozen where I live. And especially brazilians (partically afro brazilian, which who I am) women that have locs let alone natural hair. I do not have to explain any farther the complexes that can be apparent. lol

Funny you say that, theres a ton of them where i live, exception is im the only one i know that doesnt look or sound brazilian. lol.. Where do you liveI Im actually mulatto, my mom is light and my dad is dark. I love Bahia! i went to visit when i was little, probably when i was 10-12 years old. I went to visit Prado which is a small town there, as well as Cumuruchatiba i think the other town was called. I really love the deep african influence and culture there, i've always identified myself with it. I had been doing Capoeira for a few years so when i went there i got that "this is where i belong" feeling. When i bring my wife and daughter to Brazil, im certainly bringing them to the Nordeste, Bahia, Recife, Fortaleza...im staying away from where i was born...too damn viollent and dangerous! thats why i love Bahia, they still have that calm, small town feel.

I live in Washington DC and you would probably literally have to say a brazilian portuguese sentence on a speakerphone to know who is Brazilian.To look Brazilian is very complicated, because every Brazilian looks different =) I used to be teased in school here because people would say because of my dark skin, kinky hair, and non european features that I wasnt Brazilian. But you have to realize that most Americans are only exposed to Adriana Lima , Gisele Bundchen, etc. so its very hard for them to understand how complex our backgrounds really are. And I am a little scared to go to the Southern Brazil because of the violence. And yes, Bahia has a strong African background. Bahia is actually the 2nd state with the largest African descent after Nigeria. You have a very beautiful family! I hope to have a baby one day as well. =)
