What's your favorite thing about Brazil?

It is easier to answer "what do I not like about Brazil?" I love Brazil for so many reasons. For me, it is the opposite of New York (where I was born and I still live). When I visit Brazil, I take the time to enjoy life. My pace slows down. The natural environment and the warmth of the Cariocas make me understand that there is more to life than what I am exposed to in NY- and I always leave Rio wanting more of that understanding.

Have you ever been to Brazil? Where?

Yes- I have been many times- but only to Rio. Each trip to Rio I plan to visit other cities. But, once I arrive in Rio I dont want to leave so I have not seen the rest of Brazil yet.

How much Portuguese do you speak?

I have been studying for a few years- but not in a very disciplined way. Like most NYers, I work 60-80 hours a week and cannot figure out the best way to study Portuguese. I am hoping to move to Brazil soon....I want to live there, so I better start speaking better!! I have been a beginner for toooo long


Hi I am looking forward to studying Portuguese in Central Park- what a great idea....
