Hi my name is Jaime. I am an artist based out of Baltimore, Maryland. In September 2008, I spent two months in Brazil and created this blog in order to record my thoughts and research about my trip. It is definitely the beginning of long term quest to learn more about Brazil as well as myself. This past July 2009, I journeyed back to Rio and lived there for 4 months. I am planning another trip in 2010 in hopes of continuing my research.
