Gotta Get Back To Brazil...

When writing my second book in 2001, The Ways of Black Folks, I had a chance to stay two weeks in Brazil. It was absolutely great. I stayed a bit in Sao Paulo, which I loved, and also Rio, which was great. While in Sao Paulo, I had a chance to go to a place nicknamed, The Bronx. There, all of the shops paid tribute to African Americans by naming themselves "Black Power" and then the title. It was great, and I miss the friends I met there, including my boy Kibe (on the left). I think I may take the family down there during our summer, and their winter, when the rates are low and the beef and beer is cheap!
