It’s almost about a year since I met Dionisis in Rio de Janeiro a few days after arriving in Brazil. When I offered to help out my Brazilian friend, Patricia, by going to work with her to clean an apartment in upscale Copacabana, little did I know I would meet someone I would be calling one of my best friends! (Check out Maid in Rio for more about my day as a maid!)
Dionisis is a video editor and he has an unusual interest in African and African diaspora religion (check out my interview with him: From Candomblé to Voudun… these are a few if his favourite things).
When Dionisis came to London last month, there was no way he was going to leave with us meeting up! I love it when a friendship grows beyond meeting someone during your travels. We hangout in Little Italy, Soho (sorry but it was a last minute choice… And free entry)!
So now I have accommodation sorted if I decide to visit Brazil for the World Cup… I just need to work on getting a ticket there!
