Even though I come from a big city in the south of Brazil, my family managed to keep the nature around me. Grass, plants, salad, flowers, a swing in a tree and there was always one or a few dogs around my childhood. As I grew a lot of traditions were past to me, one of them to drink chimarrão, something very traditional in the south of Brazil. And basically if you ask anyone about me it’s possible they will say that I talk a lot, I like to work and study like a crazy lady, I hug a lot and that if you stop by my place there will be chimarrão, chocolate cake and a good conversation waiting for you. More than that is hard to say, but hopefully this few pages will give us the chance to have some cake and chimarrão over a nice conversation someday.
