Samba Rhythms

   This weekend we had an invitation to the most colorful barbecue of the summer. A good friend of ours celebrated his birthday Brazilian style. He and his wife shared with his us, his friends, the beautiful traditional food and music of their native country. My favorites were the blissful cocktails made with Cachaca, a rum with a faint tequila scent that is not as sugary as other rums made of sugarcane: Caipirinha, Copacabana, Batida de Carneval, and Macadas Milk.
   His wife prepared an endless array of extraordinary salads, Brazilian rice with black beans and a slow cooked (about 3 hours) pork roast OUT OF THIS WORLD!! And of course, the BBQ worked full time till the late hours of the evening. The New Moon and the clear starry sky served as the perfect background for the soul tempting sambas rhythms.
  I decided this year to change the usual white shorts and t-shirt with a more tropical look. A T-Dyed dress in the colorful hues of tangerine, blues, purples, and greens. To accessorize the look with an even more tropical feel, I created two necklaces using an eclectic mix of natural stones, handmade ceramic beads and crystals.
  This is the way to travel to Brazil in one's own backyard. Happy Birthday my Brazilian friend!
To many happy returns!!!
