On December, 9th, 2011 we went to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to watch The Nutcracker.
The ballet was AWESOME!
The main character (The Nutcracker) is a Brazilian dancer called Marcelo Gomes. He is a dancing God. Lots of technique and a great performer. We enjoyed each second there!
Washington D.C. is an amazing place to visit ! We feel very safe there. We drive everywhere and we had never had any issues at all!
What a difference from the life we had in Brazil…. leaving in the most expensive part of the city (Lagoa, in Rio’s South zone) with SEVERAL episodes of violence, and suffering many assaults, at gun point. over the years.
When I am in the USA I feel as a bird: FREE.
In Brazil I was always keeping myself indoors (traumatized after many assaults) and was totally scared to go out _ specially after dark.
When I am in the USA I feel as having a life. When I am in Brazil I feel as I’m already dead.
