No more lies! I am Brazilian too!

This one is for real, Tati! (I mean the black eye), and it’s for you, dear friend, because friends are something I value tremendously, especially after having left my own country, my family and all of my friends, 12 years ago.

In my line of work, Brazil is a very lonely place. You wouldn’t think so with so many people around, but then again, that depends on the kind of people...?


An entire population, who continues to blindly accept that hundreds of thousands of kids suffer on the streets and go hungry in a Brazil otherwise fit for a King, yet choose to do nothing about it, are not really my cup of tea. To tell you the truth; I suppose I’m not really their cup of tea either! So that makes us quits!


But with you, dear friend, I’d share a cup of tea any day because I know there is action behind your words. And I realise that the unselfish conflicts you must fight inside of you just to realise those actions, will seem boundless. And they certainly are!!! But you are a fighter and you will not abandon what your heart and conscience tells you to do.


So dear Tati, keep fighting for what you believe in, the battle is a long and hard one. Tutuco knows that too, he’s been fighting for his dreams since the day he was born and that black eye is just a small symbol of his courage. So I share his courage with you through this photo of him.


I hope you like this one too!
