I am from the US but have lived in Brazil for some 20 years. I am a history and English teacher. I love traveling, the beach, animals of all kinds, going for walks, reading, listening to music, dinner parties, coffee, wine and hanging out with friends. I used to own and run two cafés -creperies here in Salvador. Now I teach Middle School full time in Salvador. I enjoying traveling to cities as well as to remote natural areas and rural communities. I also enjoy my canine companions: two active Portuguese Water Dogs, a Westie and a sweet mutt named Lola..
