My apologies for the paucity of posts recently! I just spent a week in the extremely beautiful coastal area near the village of Ubatuba, about three hours northeast of São Paulo, and a place where internet access is scarce. When I get the chance, I will upload and post some of the photos I’ve taken so far — especially those of a remote fishing village, which I suspect dates back to colonial times, that is reachable only by a two hour hike through the Atlantic jungle or a hired speedboat ride from a local fisherman!

I’m afraid all I can offer for now is this video of one of my favorite guitarists, the understated João Gilberto, performing a version of the famous song ‘Aquarela do Brasil‘ on Brazilian television in what I assume is the early 1970s.
