It's hot. It's so hot. Did I mention it's hot?
Yesterday I glimpsed a local TV show on how to look best in a bikini which featured randomly chosen young women on a beach subject to expert fashion advice and then madeover with new suits.
This morning I learned that only 1% (as in the opposite of 99%) of Afro-Brazilians ever make it to university.
Most of last night was spent dancing at the partner organization's office.
Oh yeah and it's humid too.

I remember this article from 2003 about affirmative action:
