I spent last week in Brazil - São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Búzios.
In Rio, we had the amazing opportunity to walk through a favela that has been recently pacified. (“Pacification” is, essentially, the establishment of police units in favelas to drive out gangs and drug traffickers.) The stacked and squeezed buildings reminded me of the way San Francisco looks from outside the city, each unit a colorful little box that feels like a giant could just reach down and pull it open like a dresser drawer.
I loved Rio. The city is already gorgeous during the day, but it really comes alive at night, when the lights come on and create tiny stars on the horizon.
I love passionate people
that light that enters their eyes when they start talking about something they love
the little arm gestures they make
the massive smile that slips onto their face when they realise someone’s listening
I just love passionate, enthusiastic people and I wish more people would be like that
SO dublin minors won the all ireland football this week (don’t worry if u don’t understand its just a sideline)
and they were all out celebrating
and they found daniel radcliffe in dublin at 4am and invited him to a house party with them
and he…went with them
