Living in China: Capoeira?

It’s interesting to see that, even though I’m living 16,469 kilometers away from home (or 10234 miles or 8893 nautical miles), there is always something here and there to bring you back that feeling of “being at home”. In Portuguese, we would call that feeling Saudade. So, every time I see a Capoeira presentation right here in Shanghai, I can’t help but being a little nostalgic, can’t help but think that the world is getting smaller and smaller.
