I’m back from Brasil and it was a terrific trip! I’ll post some photos from my trip soon. I’m listening to Brasilian music while I look at my photos and check my email. Using the PowerBook with the power adaptor I bought worked perfectly and so I was able to charge the battery everywhere I went.

Welcome back Chris! Did you find the ethanol gas pumps?
Thanks! I did! I’ll post a picture when I get a chance. I even drove in a car and got photos of the engine.
Great to see you back Chris! You’ll have to share those Brazilian tunes with me.
Thanks Tomas, I will do that. It’s some good stuff.
Hey isn’t there a song called “The Girl From Ipanema”? Ever hear it?
Yeah! And she’s the girl my cousin married (literally).
Mark – “The Girl From Ipanema” is one of the most popular soul-bossa nova tunes from back in the day. One of the more popular versions is by Stan Getz and is sung in English & Portuguese.
Dude, I totally grew up with that song blasting on the lite favorites / musak station blasting from my parents’ car in the 60s and 70s.
Memories, light the corners of my…uh, nevermind.
Here’s some interesting facts from Wikipedia
Wasn’t there a musak version by Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass as well?
Yep, I know the Stan Getz version… I’m actually a big Stan Getz fan 🙂 If you want to hear some good Stan Getz get the Jazz Samba album with Charlie Byrd, it’s very good.
Como vai? We must have missed you when you were here. Friends and I live on Rua Maria Quitera right in Ipanema.
If we are not there we are at posto 9. Come buy and see us at http://www.mygirlfromipanema.com and let us know when you return to Rio.
