Charles! This is so fabulous. I am just stunned to think that you
have met everyone in Brazil and visited all these places I have heard
so much about - I am totally envious....I surely wish I could have
been there with you ;-)))

I was just on email with Fernando today. A beautiful article on
SignWriting has now been published in Brazil, thanks to Fernando and
his work. So we agreed that I should post the article on our web
site, and I hope to do that this Fall.

Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us!

Val ;-)
