Well, with the pain on my stomach almost under control, I went with Mike and the new-comer Theo-son to the International festival downtown Houston. As Mike said “I know, the country this year is Argentina, but…” (sic)
As it is an International Festival, there is a little bit of everything from everywhere. As we were walking in, I heard some Brazilian music-samba going on in one of the stages. I had no choice but to hold my stomach and dance the samba to the songs I so much recognized from the Carnival and the frevo, from the Northeast of Brazil. I even managed to find a 3 year-old partner, which made the remembrance of the pain and misery disappear in the ether of the sounds of my country. I love Brazil.

Here are some pictures taken from downtown Houston, which seemed more beautiful than normal.
