I am planning a trip to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for my Facebook group Natural Hair Community. The tentative dates for this trip are July 2-12, 2013, we are looking at spending 4-5 days in Rio, then 4 days in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil which has the largest population of African descendants. During Brazil’s period of slavery 35% of all Africans in bondage came thru Bahia, they are very proud of their African heritage.
We are going to do some tours and experience the Carioca culture and food. We are going to have a meet up and some demonstrations by some the Natural Hair schools in Rio. You will also have the opportunity to do things on your own as well.
You will need a passport of course, but to enter the country of Brazil you will need to obtain a Visa from the Brazilian Consulate, but I do not recommend doing this until 3 months prior to our trip as the visa is only valid for 180 days.
If you are interested in going, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a tentative detailed schedule. Remember if you are going to participate in this trip NO DRAMA is allowed, we are all adults and are expected to behave as such. I hope you all will be able to travel with us!!
