This is how old I am as of yesterday. I have had a string of excellent birthdays recently and this one was a classic.
is some wildlife.
Anyway that’s enough of that. It is the conference dinner. These Brazilians really know how to throw a party for an old man’s birthday. It is by the sea, the food is meat, the drink is :
Things get wilder with very loud music and not shy women dressed in costume.
Anyway after a bit of dancing around with scantily dressed women, the main band came on. They were incredible. They played exclusively Beatles songs but rearranged to include a full Brazilian drum corps and brass section. Energy, drive, fun, these Brazilians have really got something. There was a 3 second gap between songs and the drums just beat it. Everyone danced and drank and sweated.
Amazing to be dancing to exactly the same songs at 61 as I did at 16.
