They fell for it…


The Brazilian Consul General in Washington returned my brand new passport with a visa included. It’s official, I’m going to Brazil this summer! This will be my sixth consecutive World Cup and my first trip to South America. I plan to send daily updates to this blog during my travels so stay tuned.

Coincidentally, my old passport also returned tonight so above is my twenty year progression of mug shots.

Time to review some poetry for my workshop this Thursday.
