Even though I’m traveling through a congested city,
I couldn’t help asking myself: why did I leave?
Even though most of the cities are overpopulated,
the hospitality is overwhelming.
Even though the pollution is poisoning my lungs,
I can’t help to hear the rhythm on the street: look at them sing!
Even though most of the people are in poverty,
listen to them laughing is contagious.
Even though the lack of jobs could be discouraging,
I couldn’t help admiring the beautiful surroundings.
Even though public transportation could be depressing,
eating Brazilian food brings me back wonderful memories.
One thing is for sure, I’ll be back – back for more.
