Up In the Air

January 23, 2010

We had a lovely day with Elen and Ricardo at Clube de Campo de Sao Paulo.  We hadn’t been since Brazilian Father’s Day in August, and I had was stunned all over again by how beautiful the whole compound is.  It’s close to the city, and is just an expanse of green, with purple flowering trees.  There’s an incredible view looking back across the reservoir that it sits on to the sharp skyline of the city.  It was relaxing and peaceful, and after lunch a torrential, very cool thunder storm swept in.

We also saw Up in the Air, the new George Clooney Movie. I thought it was really well done.  Don’t want to ruin it for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.

The last note–at Shabbat dinner last night we met Ricardo’s sister, Jac, an amazing Brazilian artist.  Her reputation had predated the meeting, as Karen, Elen, Edite, and Ricardo’s mother all have some of her pieces in their house.  They’re pretty brilliant.
