Yes, I traveled to Brazil twice back in the '90s. The areas I explored were in the federal states of Rio, Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais. First trip: 5 weeks, 2nd trip: 3 weeks. --- Ilha Bela, Campinas, Tiradentes, Ouro Preto, Parati, S.P. ....
I'd say my Portuguese at this point is rather rudimentary, so rather a passive understanding than actively producing much of a real sentence :)
I know the basics of samba, love bossa-nova music and anything around Brazilian percussion (samba school)
Weekdays after work, or weekends
I loved my travels to Brazil (some time ago), the culture, language & music, and would like to take part in some Brazilian-inspired activities here in the Bay Area.
