I dated a Brazilian dancer for a while and all I can say is THIS GUY WINS. Brazilian women are the hottest in the world.

I saw the best naked picture in CNN .
It was a bewtiching and tantalizing lady in white snkow that melts during the carnival parade in Rio.

A real onslught for all the consume-oriented global audience about their way of behaviour and the natural melt-down.
In Köln where i live I had not seen that kind of thought-provoking display- unfortunately

I just stopped back in here for a second or two to announce that I'm leaving for Brazil immediately, as this mans new assistant.

I'll be sure to write.
