Some of my fun times in Atlanta and the U.S.:

4th of July at our neighbors Fernanda and Renaldo for Luciana and Brendon (back visiting from Brasilia):

Brigitte Flannery and me, her former Nanny


The annual CDC-Brazilian "Fejoiada", Feb. 9, 2008: 




 Holiday Party, Ikea Atlanta, 2007:

  Robocup 2007, Atlanta:

 (Sony Aibo "Robodog" soccer-playing robot)

Chinese Robocup Junior Dance team giving me the "uniform" their robot wore during the performance for my help as volunteer at the event - they were so nice! 


 With mom's and friends of the Portuguese Robocup Junior teams

 Robocup Junior Team from Bahia!

(Felipe, Danilo, me, my husband, Junior, Fabio Ferriro, their coach and my neighbor in Boca do Rio!) 

 Brigitte Flannery the last time she was at our house before the Flannery's moved to Brasilia - mom and dad were doing the final packing and cleaning and Brige was too curious!

Heather Nordstrom (a Capoeirista friend of many years of my husband, me and Charlie Mote, my chuchu!) at Atlantic Station, August 2007
