hey there. arrived in Sao Paulo at 8am. rose at the ungodly hour of 4:30am to accomplish this. we have 8 back-to-back meetings, each of which is an hour-long presentation. my brain is engaged, but my eyelids keep sinking. oh dear. more coffee, which is like rocket fuel here. the gentleman to the left? as any Brazilian can tell you, this is Alberto Santos Dumont, who invented the airplane. Or was it the Wright Brothers. This depends on how you define 'first flight' as they each 'took off' simultaneously. Why did I think of this? Because I flew out of Santos Dumont airport in Rio, their LaGuardia. Finally, Santos Dumont's house here is full of his inventions, including an entire floor designed for left-handed people.
