Sangue Latino – Eduardo Galeano

As most readers know by now, in February, I decided to shift gears a little and make my site home to my articles on Brazilian culture. There are few cases in which I will break ranks with this direction, such as with my ‘newspaper headlines’ idea and with anything in particular that strikes me as worthy of special mention.

Here is one of those exceptions, part of the Sangue Latino series done by Canal Brasil (sorry, it’s only in Spanish and Portuguese). Eduardo Galeano is an award-winning novelist from Uruguay…and someone I’d sure like to have a beer with.
