Engineer (now retired), brazilian, born 1947 in the North-East (SÃ£o LuÃs - State of MaranhÃ£o). I speak english and french fluently (just for fun, I teach french). My private bibliotheca is stacked with some 4.000 volumes, which says I like reading very much. I and my wife like travelling in Brasil and abroad. The country (beyond Brasil) I love most is France. Being very proud of Brasil (no matter our deficiencies and problems), I enjoy assisting fellow travelers into discovering my country.
