I'm 1st generation Brasilian, born in Boston. Both my parents are natives of Sao Paulo. I have dual citizenship, bit I've always identified most strongly with the Brasilian side of my identity, since I was raised with the understanding that one day we would "go home" -although we never did. I have no family in the states, only in Brasil. In short, my identity is very confused, and I've taken a number of courses ON transnational and migratory identities in college to see if I can sort it out...no closer...
Sorry. Long answer to a short question. I've never been in Porto Alegre, but I 've always wanted to see it. It's the one part of Brasil I don't have family to stay with.
