leaving Rio for Sao Paulo March 7, 2006

Posted by ditta in Uncategorized.

not easy to believe that my trip is coming to the end.. this morning left Rio filled with mixed emotions of sadness, regret that could not stay longer – even played with the idea of missing the plane, but with a strange certaintly that ´will be back soon´.

sao paulo welcomed me with a safe place to think, reflect and prepare for the coming back to Europe. staying at lis´s place, walking in the European like Vila Madalena getting in contact with friends to say good bye and get some last minutes presents and literature.

Leaving tomorrow evening,so still a full day ahead of me to prepare for the post-winter.

so until soon, with more,dd

Sambodromo in RJ March 5, 2006

Posted by ditta in Uncategorized.

last night was really an experience! six winning sambaschools entered the sambodromo and each in about 1h20 presented the best thematic show I have ever experienced!

in spite of the same rules of the ´desfile´ each school was distinguisheably different and had a unique character. started at about 8 PM and finished about 4 – 5 AM – so you can imagine how I look and feel now after sleeping a few hours..

just to give you a taste – a few pictures:


Rio-de-Janeiro-2-(23)-aless.jpg – and two more schools to go…
now my last two days in RJ and back to SP to get the flight back to Europe..


– Aless and his grand-ma and Louro – at Copacabana, who kindly offered me hospitality
Rio-de-Janeiro-2-(85).jpgRio-de-Janeiro-2-(93)-dd-la.jpg   – last moment at Ipanema
so my todays plan is Ipanema, Sugar mountain and relaxation with some thoughts about the future… also need to finish one project description I started to develop with the University of Youth and TNU..

so that is it for now and more soon, kisses dd
