RIO. A week in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The food, beach, samba, music, fresh fruit, fun in the sun. Met some even more Brazilian AM students; Rapheal, Wagner, Rodrigo and Chris, who all took us out and showed us the true Rio. I also got to hang out with Carlos Saldanha's (Director of Ice Age 2 & 3) sister in Ipanema. Go Blue Sky! We enjoyed a visit to Seagulls Fly animation studio, which has the best views in the world, and they close the blinds. :) I want to give a special thanks to the folks at AM for making it possible for me to meet these great people.

Just left Sao Paulo, the AM capital of South America, where I got meet 15 AM students. Ana and Fernando toured us all over the city and even took us to a futbol match between Santos and Sao Paulo. 0-0, but it was still exciting. We had a few fantastic Brazilian meals and I got to talk to many current and future animation peers. I had a great time and hope to see all of you guys soon!
