    Dear Cecile,

    finally our project is already starting. You still remember, don't you? I'm also a journalist and work with Tv contents here in Brazil. We will be traveling to Africa in the beggining of june and in 11 months the goal is to cover 46, of the whole 53 countries in the continent. Finally, as well, I'm able to tell you details, and essencial aspects of the project. But I think it would be easier to talk through our business e-mails. If you can, write to me. I'm anxious to exchange stories, impressions, and opinions with you! Best Regards, Tatiana Barbosa
