Hi Phil

Sorry for not seeing your post before. I wish I had had the opportunity to meet you here in Sao Paulo or other places in Brazil or, at least helping you magnify your circle of friends in our country.
If you have news ventures or venues near here please let me know...

Warm regards

Eduardo Afonso

Keep me posted as to your work with schools in Brazil. I will be launching a "How to Café Café" for school leaders here in New Jersey this fall and continue to host Cafés for students, educators, artists and communities. Let's keep in touch.
