Yes, four times. Traveled down the Amazon River in Leticia, Columbia up to Manuas then Santarem in the local boat in 1983. Ended up in Rio, teaching English. 2nd trip went to Sao Paulo, Bauru, RJ, Bahia, Forteleza, Natal, Recife in 1984. In 2008, went to Sao Paulo, Guaruja to build part of a housing project for families from favelas. It was a magical experience...just returned last week from the 2nd trip to same project which is half finished!
Fluent and want to keep this...
Love all Brazilian music, food, samba, volunteer in Brazil for a non-profit organization each year.
weekends and I live in the North Bay, so not many Portuguese speaking people I have found yet up here.
I speak Portuguese and would like to get to know others who also enjoy this. In addition, I have led 2 volunteer trips to Brazil to build houses in Guaruja, Sao Paulo. Love the music and the sound of the language...
