Ah, another rooftop bbq. I love New York! This is my friend Sam, who I met in Brazil. Being a lawyer from Brookyln, he came over to chat when he heard our American accents as we sipped caipirinhas at an outdoor café in Bahia . We learned that he was there to study capoeira (it’s a mix of dancing and martial arts). He took us to a capoeria studio and to a Brazilian football game (which is really soccer to us Americans).
Though Sam was on vacation for a few weeks, and we were still in the first leg of our yearlong trip, we promised to reunite when we were back in the States. And almost a year later, here we are.
