Brazilian Day

My awesome friend Henry from the guesthouse invited me to a Brazilian festival yesterday at Yoyogi Park near Harajuku. It was beautiful weather: we didn’t get rained on, but because of the typhoon there was this crazy strong wind most of the afternoon.

First we stopped off at the betting counter because Henry has a fondness for horse races.

The crowd at the festival was incredibly diverse. There’s a significant Brazilian population in Japan because a lot of Japanese have emigrated to Brazil… and even several generations down the line, if they have a drop of Japanese blood in them, it’s very easy for them to move back to Japan.

We stuffed ourselves with a billion different kinds of Brazilian food; I also tried caipirinha (blehhh. about as enjoyable as drinking straight rum).

Towards the end of the festival they put on boob suits and brought all the kids on stage…. an interesting combination

  1. The kids are the best part. The Asahi-drinker — obviously neeeeds to be in that stroller. And the expressions on all of the kids on stage with the boob-suit ladies are priceless! I think that shot deserves to be entered into some kind of contest — fantastic!!
