Back in Rio, our adventures in Brazil comprised of lessons and talks with programs and individuals such as the Brazilian university, IBMEC and a human rights activist. In addition, we were given the opportunity to hear from a descendent of the many slaves transported to Brazil, Selina Rodriguez, who also happens to be the princess of a voodoo Kingdom. Despite the length and density of information processed, we were rewarded with meeting children of the Olympic Energy Project and engaging in a substantial facet of their culture, the sport of wrestling and soccer, and the art of Capoeira. We also celebrated Naia's 16th birthday with a cake after dinner - Happy Birthday Naia! In all, we enjoyed taking part in several days of activity with many life lessons to learn from.
