A Happy 5th!

Today, Eyes On Brazil turns 5 years old (that’s 20 in blog years). This year it looks like I’ll hit one million views, pretty good for a blog I started from nothing.

While there are lots of posts that readers have favorited over the years, the one that has grown to receive the most attention is the long, detailed Brazilian Films list I created. It’s up to 180 films so far (and growing).

Going back in time, here are a few of my first posts on the blog:

– On Italian immigration (my Portuguese translation included)
– On State etymologies
– On the Volta da Asa Branca song
– On Repentistas (troubadores)

I’d also like to take a minute to say thanks to Luciana from Street Smart Brazil who gave me an empurrãozinho (little push) late last year to start making my own ebooks (after having editing hers). My 103 Tricky Verbs in Brazilian Portuguese, which is selling well (and which I’ll have on Amazon, etc. in the coming weeks), is the first of several to come!

I’ll leave you with a suave Bossa song that just came on the radio ; )
