    A long time ago I did.

    I went to Manus (sp?) Sao Paulo, Rio and briefly Salvador.

    Did you have a specific question?

    Hi King Tubbs. Yes I had some specific questions.

    1. How was the food?

    2. Did you peep any jujutsu or vale tudo fights?

    It was good. However being of Caribbean descent I expected a similar amount of pepper and spices and found much of it a bit bland especially in Sao Paulo, Rio was better and had dishes were similar to Caribbean ones.

    I dont know those words. I saw some capeiroa (sp?) fights I dont know if thats the same thing as you describe. Thats an acrobatic African influenced form of martial arts but I saw many different races doing it.

    We Live In Brazil

    We currently live in Brazil.
    Salvador, Bahia to be exact. It's a lovely place with a strong Afro Brazilian culture. This is where Capoeira was invented.

    Oi, I’m a bit jealous that you live in Salvador, Brazil. Do you Play Capoeira by chance?
