Missing Brazil....

Today I am missing Brazil.

I'm also not working which has allowed me to dwell on missing Brazil. More to the point it's allowed me to dwell on the fact that there are people I call friends over there whom I've not seen in just over two years and I miss them.

Luckily Nicole now lives in London (although we haven't seen much of each other recently for one reason or another - although that will chnage next week!), and several of my Brazillian friends keep in reasonably email contact with me but its not the same as actually spending time with them.

I think the latest bout of my feelings towards the country was brought on by Nhuivoti Duarte when she mailed me an invitation to join www.orkut.com which is similiar to www.friendster.com that I joined a few months ago. The main difference seems to be that a number of my Brazillian friends are on orkut. Anyway, I finally joined it this afternoon and have been sifting through friends and friends of friends remembering various faces from my brief visits to Sao Paulo and Campinas. I've added a few of the guys already and will no doubt have a much more in-depth look at everyone at somepoint (and try and remember peoples surnames!!) but what I really want to do is fly over there and catch up with people.

I feel a trip to Brazil coming up within the next year. I need my fix.

Thanks Nhuivoti for inviting me on-board and reminding me of some good times!!!

Please do keep me in mind for a travelling partner when you go to Brazil next year.

I usually try to go towards the end of May so I coincide with Devir's convention as that seems to draw people I know from all over the country to one location. It also, more or less, guarantees I'll bump into people I've met in previous years (and head to O'Malleys, etc...:p)

If you go I'm guessing you'd largely base your stay in Rio? I'd try to get down to Sao Paulo and/or Campinas to catch up with friends there too but I could always head south by myself which would allow you some quality time with the family.

Anyway, its way too early to start thinking about planning this. Lets talk more next year on this. But yes, I am interested.
