me showing off my capoeira moves
This was my last week playing Capoeira and I´m a little sad now that it´s finished. My last two days were amazing... on wednesday after class we walked to this little lake near by to have a jogo. It was fantastic!! This is what it´s all about... we were outside under the full moon singing songs and playing capoeira. Across the lake you could see the favela lit up by the lights and a couple people from there came out to play with us and they were really good. Guilherme was taking pictures and at the end we had a picture of everyone in my class.

Thursday was my last day, we had a class and then a jogo afterwards. At the end, Guto said some nice things about me and everyone clapped their for me. I gave Guto a Canadian pin to remind him of me and thanked him for everything he´s done to teach me capoeira then it was over... Everything here is slowly coming to an end.
