A Minneapolis/St. Paul based Brazilian jazz group entertained us on July 26, a beautiful Sunday evening at Caponi Art Park's "Theater in the Woods" amphitheater. The group, "Ticket to Brasil," is a Bossa Nova, Samba and Brazilian Jazz ensemble.
Surrounded by green forest, many people and a few dogs listened to the music on blankets, folding chairs or camping chairs.
I was bit by a foreign travel bug after my sophomore year in high school. I haven't found a cure for it, nor do I plan to. I visited India for 5 weeks in early 2009 and Europe in July 2009. My family and I spent 1 month in Sweden, Norway and Denmark in July 2010. In January 2012, I went to the foothills of the Himalayan mountains and a wedding in Jaipur, India. Then in May 2012, I returned to Japan and Bangkok, Thailand. My family and I spent 3 weeks in Paris, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany in August 2012.
