    It was unbelievably crowded! Bigger than last year![masked] people! A big mix of Brazilians who came from all over the USA, and people from all over the planet! A lot of people from meetup stopped by to say hello. Thanks to all who came to give prestige to the Brazilian Day!
    I had a lot of fun with my lovely husband Kilby, Barbara - "Pink Girl," Manhattan Samba School, and with all who stopped by.
    Congratulations to all who worked hard to put a beautiful event together!
    VIVA BRASIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    See you next year!
    Um beijo brasileiro,

    Fantastic time, I had a blast.....I'm sure we missed seeing a lot of people because the event was jam packed with fans of Brazil. Muito bom, legal!!!
