Where It’s At

The hostel where we’re staying is a real treat. Pousada dos Franceses is located on a beautiful winding one-way street, surrounded by colorful homes and shops –– and it’s just a quick uphill walk away from Paulista Avenue. The hostel employees are incredibly hospitable and it’s been nice these first few days to be able to chat with other tenants and the various people manning the front desk.

Kin Wan, a fellow guest at Pousada dos Franceses, traveled to Brazil in 2008 to learn the universally popular style of music bossa nova.

It’s wonderful to work on our respective stories through our contacts and translators in this environment, and I think I can speak for all of us when I say it’s great to be making progress on our stories down here. For now, my mornings are spent finalizing details and making calls, but soon enough I’ll be posting content from my personal story.

  1. Kat — love the jeans picture! And Nickolai with his phone, his Apple and the rumpled bed. Good work.
