Meet Carmen

First of all, I want to tell you I´m a very happy person.

I was born in Ribeirão Preto, a city in the countryside, in the state of São Paulo. But I moved many times, so I started my studies in Orlândia, São Paulo, afterwards I moved back to Ribeirão, where I studied the second and third years of Middle School.

Then, I moved to São Paulo/SP where I spent my teenage years. I was very happy when I was a teenager. I used to go out every Saturday, I used to dance and I sues to have many friends, but, at the same time, I used to study very hard because I wanted to go to College. So I took an entrance exam to study in Brasilia at the Post Office College. I passed and the Post Office Service had a house for the students in Taguatinga ( a dormitory city), so I used to live with 3 girls. It was very fun. The girls were very nice. Everything used to be a discovery. I lived in the Post Office House for two years. When I graduated, I
rented an apartment with other friends, five or six, girls and boys. It was very fun, too. I had many boyfriends and, frequently, I went out to parties and restaurants.

Now, I´m married. I love my husband and my children. They are very nice. My daughter is my friend and my son is my baby. I´m so happy and I like my life. Sometimes I remember my past, but I think my present is even better.

You all begin to make me wish I had been born in Brazil. You all enjoy living there so much.

I've just found out that my wife drove through Brazil, or some of it, when she lived and worked in Chile. I hadn't realised that before. She has definitely told me, but I'd forgotten, or wasn't paying attention when she told me. (Naughty husband).

Thanks for telling us about your life.

Hello Dennis,
Now in Brazil we are in spring. The city, Brasília, is beautiful. There are many flowers in the gardens and in the trees.
When will you come to Brazil to know us?

When will I come to Brazil?

I must start saving my Euros! But first I have to go to South Africa next year to see my granddaughter, Jana.

Best wishes,
