"Write our own books"

"So if no hope is given to us we’ll have to create it ourselves. If the tools of rebellion for sale aren’t really rebellious we will make them. We’ll start our own bands to inspire, write our own books to educate and we’ll build our own movements to lift us out of out of the artificial “outside”. There is a tremendous importance in doing this not only for us, but also for the people who border on being truly hopeless. Solidarity starts when we realize that we have the potential to be there for someone else, and with that only creativity sets the limits. The same means that are used to describe loneliness can also be used to instill togetherness, and to use those means in a way that matters is our responsibility".

The first time I was in Berlin I was kind of shocked. People shouting on the street and drunk men in the subway was totally not expected. It was winter and the city was gray and I didn't do that much.
Second time, it was summer but a cold and rainy one. And once again, I didn't do that much, but I started enjoying the city a bit more.
This year I fell in love with Berlin. I don't really know how to explain it, but I guess it's because this time I finally got the chance to explore it a bit more. I visited places where I hadn't been before and I met good people. And I want to go back.

São Paulo is jroos. Wa?

The photo above was taken when I was arriving back home. As lots of people asked me during the trip how big São Paulo is, I thought a photo would be worth. There are about 11 million people living just in São Paulo. There are other cities around (everything is called Big São Paulo) and they must have about 20 million inhabitants together. São Paulo has 1.509 km2 and 1.000 km2 are urban areas.

About the title: Berlinerisch is one of my favourite German dialects. It means: São Paulo is big, isn't it?

I'm back in Brazil. The flight was fine and I'm just tired.
Tomorrow is working day for me and I don't look forward for it.

i'm enjoying my last days of vacation.
i wasn't expecting much of this trip, but it turned out to be very good. i met friends (and i realized how many good friends i have here) and i met new cool people. so, far, i've been in frankfurt, saalfeld, jena, weimar, magdeburg (where i am right now, again), berlin, munich and nuremberg.
next wednesday, at this time, i'll be at work. the days passed faster than i thought they would.
i'll upload some photos on flickr when i'm back home.
