What events would you like to happen with the group?

drinks and/or dinner, samba concerts, etc

What is your native language? How much Portuguese do you speak?

I am fairly fluent in Brazilian Portuguese, but I have not practiced speaking in a while. I have taken several classes in Brazilian Portuguese at the New School. I have spent several weeks in Brazil between 2001 and 2003 so I had a lot of time to practice back then...

Have you ever been to Brazil? If so, what is your favorite place or thing to do?

I have been to Brazil three times so far. I've been to Rio in 2001 and 2002, and to the Northeast of Brazil in 2003. I love to go to the beaches in Brazil and relax or boogie board. My favorite beaches so far are: Jacúma in João Pessoa, Boa Viagem in Recife, the sand dunes in Natal, Barra da Tijuca, Arraial do Cabo, Cabo Frio, and Buzios in Rio.

Would you please provide your name (in case you did not use it) and email address? This information will not be displayed in the group.

Hi - my name is Doug and I would like to join your meetup group. This group seems like a great opportunity to practice and get more exposure to one of my favorite cultures.
