Celebrating Brazil Independence Day in Nairobi Officially…

I was delighted to receive an invitation to Brazil’s 191st Independence day celebration at the ambassador’s residence in Nairobi on September 5th this year thanks to a dear friend 🙂

Despite running around preparing for the “Brazil Day the Nairobi Way Party” two days later, I twisted Stef’s arm to come with me (she was already willing, partly because she’s an eighth Brazilian.)

We got our nails done, subtly donned Brazilian colors and headed off to the Ambassador’s residence and solemnly promised to be on our best behavior. I must say, we did well 🙂

The set up was formal, the food delicious and the  guests very friendly.

In her speech, the ambassador H E Marcela Nicodemos pointed out that Brazil and Kenya have always had a very good relationship irrespective of the area of interest be it trade, agriculture and even education. We all had an amazing time. Here are some more pictures of us a couple of caipirinhas later.
