Happy birthday Chris!
Morumbi means ‘green hill’. Had it meant ‘Violet Hill’ it would have been perfection. Still, it’s a word of indigenous origin and I love the sound of it: doesn’t it make you think of a crescendo of noise? Appropriate for tonight indeed. It’s Chris’s birthday today and Will sang ‘Happy Birthday’ in Portuguese, reading out some scribbled notes on his guitar, and São Paulo’s people joined in. Feliz aniversário!
Our twenty Oxfam volunteers have done a marvellous job, tiredlessly handing over thousands of bookmarks to the public. Visit this website www.tictactictac.org.br and make your voice heard for the next fundamental step on the negotiations on climate change. After Copenhagen, Mexico’s COP16 is the place where the world leaders will gather to decide the planet’s future in December 2010.
Thanks Carlos and Mirella, and all of you, volunteers in Rio and São Paulo. You have been wonderful.
Now time to get ready for Colombia.
