SEPTEMBER 2006: The Mask
During my trip to Salvador, I made many friends, and shortly after the trip, I received many invitations for meetings and parties. One night, I organized a video night, and showed music videos that I had produced from a selection of pictures that I had taken in and around Salvador. Some friends graduated, and I witnessed the ceremonies and parties. You make more friends with friends. One night, I was invited to go out with some friends. The following night I participated in a party in an apartment. The host of this party is a born actor and entertained us with a funny mask. One of his friends was a journalist, who just had started her career at a local newspaper. She became interested in my story and asked me for an interview. Some weeks later, she called me, and I answered her questions about my opinion concerning tourism in Belo Horizonte in my best Portuguese. Some weeks later, this interview appeared in the newspaper.
