My name is Heloisa, but you can call me Helô (the 'h' is silent ;)
I am a brazilian journalist, working in the last few year as public relations. I am married with the best man in the world. We are a childless couple with an adorable dog and a grumpy cat - that I love anyway.
I really enjoy meeting new people from different cultures, countries, traditions and learn a litlle bit more about their habits. That can happens travelling, in pubs, concerts, public transportation, or even in the classics small talks in the queues.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Having traveled a three-day trail in the midst of the Atlantic Forest, carrying camping tent, food, and having known wonderful places - with very rare houses and people - on the way to Saco do Mamanguá (south coast of Rio de Janeiro)

Quando chegar o momento, Esse meu sofrimento, Vou cobrar com juros, juro!
Todo esse amor reprimido, Esse grito contido, Esse samba no escuro.
Você que inventou a tristeza
Agora tenha a fineza de “desinventar”.
Você vai pagar, e é dobrado, Cada lágrima rolada nesse meu penar.
- When the time comes, This my suffering, I will charge with interest, I swear!
All this love repressed, This contained cry, That samba in the dark.
You who invented sadness
Now have the fineness of "disinheriting".
You'll pay, and it's doubled, Every tear rolled in my heart.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A lot about Brazilian culture and a little bit about Latin American culture.
I am a great cook, a high spirits, happy, curious, I love parties, music, a crowd, but I also care for silence and solitude. I contemplate and marvel at the works of nature as well as the works done by humans. I want to learn a lot and always, I want to share with whoever I want interested the little I know.
