"Share my world" Zarasher's Profile
%London is where I was born and raised... been here for 25 years bar a years stay in Atlanta where I studied on an exchange program at Spelman College... that has to be one of the greatest years of my life... %f*
My next trip is to Trinidad in July and then back to Brazil at christmas so if anyone else is going around the same time or has any reccommendations on side trips...feel free to email me! You can check my travel blogs in the travel category on my blogpage.
Atlanta has to be one of my most favourite places... Southern Hospitality runs throughout the city and I love the Southern drawl too

... and not all at the same time
At the moment teaching myself Portuguese through the use of Books, CD's and CD-Roms. I am planning to go back to Brazil over the Christmas period so am absolutely determined to get my Portuguese up to a conversational level.
I am so pleased with myself at the moment. I managed to get Pimsleur Portuguese Levels 1 and 2 cd's on Ebay for £4. What a bargain? That would have been a full retail price normally pushing over £250... And what a wonderful program it is... I can FEEL the improvement. I listen to it on my way to work and from work and sometimes on my lunch hour!!!
I love going to the theatre... the last thing I saw was Hedda Gabler at The Duke of York Theatre... I highly recomend it... It is still running... Here is a brief summary:
"Arriving home for an extended honeymoon Hedda Gabler struggles with an existence that is, for her, devoid of excitement or enchantment. Filled with a passion that cannot be confined by her marriage or 'perfect home', Hedda strives to find a way to fulfil her desires by manipulating those around her"
