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.
