I found it interesting and an open umbrella stuck in a tree, the umbrella had a photograph of the face of a Japanese girl. And I made a poem. She saw and liked in Japan.

A poetry made ​​in Brazil ended in Japan I have a partner in Austria I met through my poetry, it sends the melody of songs by email and I make the letters.
I have friends in India, France, the USA having never left Brazil.

I could attend a filming of another Brazilian student doctoral student in England, about the film City of God.

Truth. In addition to achieving the preguiços readers, she can conquer curious people and develop creativity in the transfer of records, interviews, materials, poetry.
Be constant for its permanence people can do their time, and even if they have a atribuluado day, when connecting vitual enters the action and communicates with the world. It is a definite time and space that we could keep in touch.
