My apologies for not sending an update sooner. Internet access has not been as good as I had hoped. However I am alive and well having just arrived in Salvador, Brazil on Wednesday. I have crossed the Atlantic and the equator!! My seven days at sea were peaceful ones filled with classes and homework...and dance. I have started teaching belly dance on the ship and I am truly enjoying it.
Since my last message we have visited Croatia, Greece, Spain, Senegal and Brazil (where I will be until Monday evening).
Brazil so far seems quite amazing. It is full of music and song. As a percussionist I am experiencing a bit of heaven; there is rhythm everywhere!! Yesterday I spent the afternoon in a percussion workshop with Giba Conceicao. It was two of the most amazing hours of my life. Tonight I´ll be attending either an Afro-Brazillian dance class or a samba show. I am not yet sure which!! There really is so much to see and do here.
I might be falling in love with Brazil...or Salvador at least.
After Salvador we have a nine day sea journey to Trinidad and Tobago. We are there for only a short time, two days, before we head for the Panama Canal and Costa Rica.
This journey is two thirds over.
I hope to update again in Trinidad. Thank you again for making this journey possible.
Oh! I hope my post cards have been arriving safely. If you did not send me your address please do so and I´ll send one a long.
