Dia 2 – Ethan Evans – 03 de Março de 2015

August 21, 2015

My first day in Brasilia was a bit of a haze—it still hasn’t begun to sink into my brain that I am actually in Brazil. It is amazing how, even though society works generally in the same way here, the simplest of tasks in a foreign place and a foreign language can be incredibly exhausting (shopping in a grocery store, ordering food, getting directions, etc.) But after a whole day here, it’s still a haze. Luckily though, Jake and I met up with Jon Gardner (a former student at UofL that studied at UnB as well) yesterday, and he showed us around the city for a while. That night, we ended up sitting in with his gig at Pinella, a bar in the nearest quadra to our apartment. Bruno Gafanhoto and Eudes play there as well. It was great to see Bruno again, as we knew him for a year in Louisville while he was finishing his master’s degree. Playing with them was like medicine to a fairly rocky start to this experience. Jumping right in seems to be the best thing to do.
