Our first video link must be this one:

Old Disney Cartoon : Donald Duck in Rio. Amazing.

Oi, Tudo bem?!

          Welcome along to our tiny patch of territory in Cyberlandia.  A period of one month has now snuck by since we alighted on Carioca turf and began pecking away at understanding how things function here.

         The purpose of this page is merely to catalogue, process, digest and interpret as much as is feasible from the infinite, glistening heap of culture that exists in Rio de Janeiro & wherever else we can visit in Brazil before returning to Canada.  It is also a means of maintaining contact with friends, family & the random folk who might give some kind of a damn about what it is like to exist in this country.

         It is hard to say right now about the exact contents of what will emerge here, the goal is to have it evolve and form itself into something as more posts are concocted & we begin to communicate more thoroughly with the people here & the internet community.  We'll let that be the first post as the evening is lovely, we've been cooped up all day, and the two stomachs in the room are demanding sustenance (probably feijoada)

Stay tuned for the first installment of the Brazilian music that has thrust itself at us in the last couple of weeks (already accidentally purchased 20 pieces of vinyl...shhhhh)
