I applied for grant funding from the wonderful Winston Churchill Memorial Trust - for the Brits among you, check it out as they support all sorts of trips abroad!
I am also a capoeirista, and my nickname is Um Braco Cabeludo, which means 'One Hairy Arm' hence the name of the blog. I will of course be visiting some capoeiristas along the way too (yay!).
Hope you enjoy my journey in a vicarious sort of way!
