Adventures of a foreigner in the south of Brazil.

...would be extremely desirable in Brazil in the winter, if only to keep red wine at drinkable temperatures! As Brazilian electrical appliances are failing me (yes, it's true, a bleeding radiator has a lifetime of next to nothing here, leave alone the little fact that that bit of technology is about as simple as it gets) I have no way at all to keep wine reasonably warm here, since I can hardly put the glass on a gas cooker. So either I import some heating device from a country where they actually know how to put a few wires together that do not break down after a few weeks, I drink red wine without any discernible flavour or I settle for Cachaca in the winter which at least is supposed to be enjoyed cold. Oh well, maybe next to a gas cooker is a solution for this conundrum. If you don't hear any more from me it probably means the apartment has blown up.

The photos from Bailando Fusões are online now at The Mambo solo is on page 5 and the Mambo/Street Dance Fusion on pages 9 and 10 - that one is all the ladies and gentlemen in jeans and white.

The next show is coming up, 19.-21. of June. The motto is "Bailando Fusões", the show will take place in Porto Alegre in the Casa de Cultura Mário Quintana. I am going to be there with a Mambo and a Mambo/Street Dance fusion project. That one is new territory for all of us and it is a hell of a lot of fun.
