Here is a link for a blog called Nota Latina. It seems to be run by two Brazilians who "get" the reality of Fidel, Hugo, the left in Latin America, and their Human Rights violations.

I guess like most people my age, Karate Kid was of of those movies that I remember fondly. My sister to this day calls me Danielsan, which always puts a smile on my face. Needless to say, I am excited about this, which is pretty big cause I haven't felt this way about a new release since the last Star Wars film, which is kinda ironic condsidering the quick Yoda reference in the trailer.

I used to be a big fan of the Olympics. Of course this was when the Cold War was in full swing. To be honest, I miss having nations to "root" against. I used to laugh my ass off whenever an Eastern Bloc "amateur" failed miserably. Anyways, Erito "Junior", Adriana's oldest, studies during the day, so he spends the afternoons now watching some of the coverage. His favorite sport so far is Figure Skating, cause he just loves to laugh like I did whenever someone takes a spill. He just sits and waits regardless of the nation they represent, hoping for a stumble. It doesn't matter the sport anymore, he just wants to see someone fall or get smacked. He's a big 3 stooges fan. His mom started to get cheesed off, but I said "Hey, I did the same thing.." It has been fun watching him enjoy the Olympics, and he wants to know why they don't show it more often. I explained the 4 years thing, but now he is getting ready for the Summer Olympics. What amused me was how he sat there doing the same exact thing when I was his age. Good to know I was not alone.

Well, I am back "home" in Brazil. I had a great time with my mom, family and friends. The trip back really wore me out, more so that the dozen other times I have made a trip down. I got home and just near passed out on the bed after I took a shower. The kids were really happy to have me back and asked me "never to leave again". I have a lot of catching up with translations so I can't write more now. Just an update to let everyone know..
