It feels so good to be in Brazil again. When I moved to the USA I spent five years without going home and Christmas and New year didn’t have the same meaning for me. Being surrounded by my family and friends during the holidays was priceless.
These pictures were taken at Iporanga beach -  a private beach in the island where I grew up. I used to not go much to this beach when I lived in Brazil but now it has become one of my favorites. Being here makes me feel connected o myself again.
