South America | Brazil | Rio de Janeiro – Getting prepared
Now I only have to wait for less than one week to depart.
When I talk to friends from other countries and say I am that excited to go from a 5-weeks trip to Argentina, I think they cannot understand what this in-a-sense short trip actually means. I have been waiting to get away for a long time now – and for us Brazilians is way harder than for an European. And, besides that, this is the first time I am visiting a South American city intendind to discover a little bit of its peculiarities and similarities to my own South American city. So…
Well, I can see now 15 million oportunities in the face of my imaginary porte?os; I can see myself meeting brand new people in the hostels I will stay; I can see the wealth of what I will bring back to Brazil; I can listen to the new music that will come through my ears and the new sights that will come through my eyes; I can see the prejudices going down the sewage and fresh conceptions coming out. And I am absolutely in love with everything I can see… But I will tell you guys all about it when I get there.
For now, all the best for the new years.

It’s somethin’ that uses me without a doubt,
’cause somewhere abstract coincidence happens, see someone in passin’ while out and about,next thing I know I’m happily travelin’, puttin’ in action ideas that I mouth, cause I speak it and do it, talk it and walk it, I’m so bad about it, I shout it out loud, but try to stay open, the forces in motion’
