Introduction Just in case you were wondering, I'm not from Ipanema, nor have I ever lived in Brazil (altho' I dream of going there, some day..). I just happened to be listening to that song when this blog was born. Random passer-by folks, the regulars, comisserators, dissenters, are all very welcome here. Thank-you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. For the random troll, however, try to get unnecessarily personal or irrelevently insulting and you just have my virtual equivalent of vunn tiiight SlaP.
Favorite Music Bossa nova, classic rock, afro-cuban, jazz, dhinchaak autorickshaw music
Favorite Books H2G2. HP.
