I do love Oceans, Sailing, Free Diving and Playing Saxophone(Bossa-Nova and Jazz). Besides the above, I am an Easy Going, Friendly, Salty, Caring, Intuitive, Made for Water, Intelligent, Honest, Healthy, Fit, and Financially Stable person, that likes to cook Asian Food, Sea Food, besides being a “handyman” that can fix stuff, including sailing boats. I also like hiking and camping, but for the latter it has not happened in a while, it stopped when my children stopped wanting to go. I speak a native Portuguese,(Native of Brazil), and became fluent in English and Spanish. I studied Japanese, to a strong beginner level; I like the food and the interesting cultural aspects. Then I spend a month in a gaijin school in Fukuoka in 2014. It was a fantastic experience. I even sailed in Japan, from Genkaishima to Umi-no-naka-michi. I am scratchy in other languages, but can read a French text, or Italian text and understand. Work, sailing, studying and vacations had already taken to me many places: México, Antigua, Guadalupe, Dominique, Martinique, US Virgin Islands, Saint Martin, Paraguai, Germany, Ireland, Finland, France, Balearic Islands, Italy, Greece, Japan, Hong-Kong and Australia. (Did I forget any? Yes I was born in Brazil and have been living in USA for the last 31 years).... How come that I have never gone to Portugal, the land of my grand-parent? Still got to get a fix there and sail up into one of the rivers. Would Porto be a good place? Well I have already sailed to Porto Seguro in Brazil, where Pedro Alvarez Cabral anchored and placed a Portuguese mark in Brazil in 22 de abril de 1500.
