Adri Walk Around

Memories, Moments to share



Hand made

Sometimes you try, and try but it does not happen. I have experience, knowledge, but I have a great challenge I am not fluent in Japanese, so I am not getting where I want … Soon it will be 1 year that I arrived here.

Iam now trying to find a way out, another solution. To relax and try new things I have made below


maybe it is just a new hobby, but it helps me to deal with my hard time and doubts at this moment.


ブリガデイロ-アルバイト楽しかった!Brigadeiro, part time job in a bar, fun!

This weekend I had a chance to work in a bar in Ookayama, in South of Tokyo. This bar is very cozy and it is very near of the station. Me and my friend we received the customers and serve them some snacks and drinks like Haibooru ( Whisky and Energetic) and I could serve my brigadeiros ( chocolate balls below) to the customers. As the customers are Japanese, no foreigners, it was a great opportunity for me to practice my Japanese and learn more about what the Japanese lives, some of the customers came from Ibaraki ( another city in direction to North ), Yokohama, neighbors who lives near there and my friend friend’s. In addition I could tell them about my country, Brazil.


Neste fim de semana trabalhei num bar em Ookayama ao Sul de Tóquio, e foi bem divertido, além de servir a bebida e as entradas, pude servir o brigadeiro que como escrevi anteriormente adaptei aos padrões japoneses ( utilizo leite e açúcar ao invés do leite condensado). A bebida que servíamos é o que eles chama de Haibo-ru ( uma mistura de whisky com energético) e eles se serviam do sake japonês. Tive a oportunidade de praticar o japonês e conhecer um pouco mais da vida deles, e deles conhecerem um pouco mais do Brasil, para mim uma ótima troca de conhecimento e experiência, coisas que levo para minha vida..

Peru – Arequipa

Second Stop – AREQUIPA

Small city  known as “WhiteCity”, because some of the buildings there are made by  a white stone that are formed by the volcanoes near by the city. My impressions of Arequipa cozy, beautiful, Colca Valley, and mal de altitude.

Colca Valley and Canyons ( Nature and local culture)

Beautiful Colca Valley and Canyons,  we were able to see the deep valley and how the local civilization was able to develop agriculture in high altitude, I believe there, we were around 3700 ms altitude. During this trip we felt a little dizzy ( mal de altitude) due to the high altitude.  We also saw the condores, a bird that we can see only on this region.

Peru ( Oct-Nov/2015)

Great trip to Peru, me and my friends were able to get to know about Peruvian culture, art, nature, the archaeological monuments of its ancient cultures and their delicious culinary.
