Random Lisbon moment

Posted by sue on August 9th, 2008

This is Jordan Estêvão, who, despite the Portuguese name with all the crazy accents, is an American and one of my fellow English teachers.

I like this photo because it’s unusual in a couple of ways. First, Jordan is wearing glasses, which is unusual for him because he normally wears contacts. Second, he has, most atypically, the miniature head of Len’s capoeira master, Mestre Nilson, growing out of his chest.

    Len, you play capoeira? What do you think? I started in February and am a little obsessed with it by now… I’m thinking of going to Brazil with my school next summer… I was in Croatia and Bosnia this summer and went to a two day “international” capoeira workshop in Zagreb too (there were people from Zagreb, another city in Croatia, Belgrade, and me). Interesting times ensued… if you want to read about it or my other Bosnian/Croatian adventures, I’ve been keeping a blog at http://www.prtljaga.blogspot.com that I will in theory update again soon…

    So far I haven’t met any Brazilians or Portuguese native speakers through capoeira, which is sad because my Portuguese is getting rusty, though there is a nice assortment of Chileans, Frenchmen, French Canadians, Haitians, Ethiopians, Peruvians, and Germans in my group. The other day I went to the intermediate class with my (French) instructor, whose English is less than spectacular but whose Portuguese is excellent, and he started class by saying “You are intermediate, so I give class in Portuguese. You should know, if you are capoeirista.” Ha. That made me happy but I don’t think everyone else was too thrilled.

    Anyway, good to see you guys are doing well. How much longer are you planning on staying in Portugal?
