THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS COMES TO BRAZIL

Dwayne Johnson Joins Vin Diesel in the 'Fast Five' Trailer

by: Matt McDaniel

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson Universal Pictures It seemed like "The Fast and Furious" movie franchise had run out of gas, but then 2009's "Fast & Furious" was a surprise hit, becoming the highest-grossing film of the series with a gross of $359 million worldwide.

Since bringing Vin Diesel and Paul Walker from the original worked so well for the fourth movie, it was only natural that they'd team up again for the fifth. They're back in the next installment called "Fast Five," and this time, they will be joined by cast members from each of the previous movies.

Rodney Beatin and his wife, (WOW, Rodney Beatin his wife, LOL did anyone else catch that?? LOL) a couple of 60-somethings, divide their time between Columbus, Ohio, a nd Brazil, spending six months a year in each place. One of the reasons for their move was to live in a place with a low cost of living that is easier on their retirement budget.
[See 10 Tips for Retirement Overseas.]

"Living in the United States was becoming expensive for the value of what you get, for the quality of life. So, we began looking elsewhere and considering alternatives," says Beatin. "We found and bought a home in Brazil, near the shore, but we didn't want to move there full-time. We just weren't ready for that dramatic of a change. Mostly, we wanted to find a way to reduce our cost of living."

Is Brazil’s Economy Getting Too Hot?


Image via Wikipedia
Last night 60 Minutes featured a segment on Brazil entitled “The World’s Next Economic Superpower.” Eike Batista, Brazil’s richest man and the world’s eighth richest man (profiled by Forbes  in March) told Steve Kroft that it’s time for Americans to “wake up” to the economic giant to their south.
Many Americans have already been awake to Brazil for at least some time.
Just today, General Electric demonstrated its interest in Brazil when it announced a plan to buy subsea pipeline manufacturer Wellstream Holdings, which derives a “substantial portion” of revenues from Brazil, for $1.3 billion.

AYAHUASCA TEA CEREMONY: JOURNEY WITHIN

Talk to someone who has experience with Ayahuasca and you will understand very quickly that although the ingredients of the tea are pretty easy to explain, making an effort to describe anything beyond that borders on impossible. Brian Wilson (Urban Shaman aka “Wannabe Woodsman”), an American living in Brazil and your guide for the tea ceremony should you partake, does a great job of articulating this powerful medicine.

1st a Little Info on Ayahuasca
Ayahuasca, in its physical form, is a healing plant mixture boiled, strained, and drank in sacred ceremony by shamans in the Amazon rainforest for thousands, possibly tens of thousands of years. There is tons of research available explaining the long-term benefits of working with the brew, including a permanent increase in seratonin levels (leading to more happy, fulfilling lives), release of various physical ailments (some considered incurable in Western medicine), and release of psychological and mental-related illnesses (such as schizophrenia). Spiritually, this plant is in its own Universe, beyond comprehension levels of most and limited by mere language.

IMPORTANT FESTIVALS FOR SALVADOR



 

 

 

 

Important Festivals

Salvador da Bahia

Festivals da Salvador

The popular festivals trace their origins back to the tradition of communities of paying tribute to their patron saints, expressing their gratitude for blessings obtained. During the event the requests for peace, good health, and wealth are renewed.

The centuries old custom was inherited by the Portuguese and has been changed through the years. Originally the festival presented just people praying and chanting to their patron saints, but with time, stands selling drinks and food appeared, giving to the festival an entertainment characteristic. The songs are no longer strictly religious ones. On the streets can be heard the the typical capoeira and samba beats along with other rhythms.

These changes transported the festivals beyond the communities and churches’ largos into the streets. Nowadays they are registered by the curious eyes of tourists and by TV cameras from all over the world. They come to Salvador to appreciate these moments, which express so well the icons of the local culture such as Candomblé, Catholicism, gastronomy, dancing and music.

The festivals take place all through the year, without ever losing their enthusiasm. These guarantees a good time from January until December, for both the faithful and those who come only to visit. Salvador provides a million reasons for a good celebration and some of the best-known popular festivals are Bom Jesus dos Navegantes, Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, the Yemanjá festivity and Nossa Senhora da Conceição.

Salvador is a land of all saints and the people celebrate accordingly. It shines with a magical glow that invites every person from every corner of the earth to find out why Salvador has been named the Land of Happiness.
