We (Eli Yamin, Kate McGarry, Bob Stewart & I) arrived in Recife, Brazil in the early afternoon. We had the whole day to catch up on our rest before beginning our schedule of workshops and clinics….but I simply couldn’t sit in my hotel knowing that something like this was happening out there somewhere.

This is my first day in Brazil.

Thankyou Jorge Martins and Marivaldo Lima!


Thankyou Edvaldo S. Amorim for taking my perhaps not so sublte requests seriously and arranging the visit!!!
