Postcard Challenge - Week 3

This week the postcard was from Brazil.  With the characters and the time period in my story, some countries will be more challenging than others.  So I had to get creative in how to handle this.  What I am doing for this week and some upcoming weeks, if needed, is to have Marcello use Postcards his wealthy grandparents brought back to him from their world travels.  So in today's card from Brazil he used it because the colourful samba images reminded him of the flamenco dancer on the card sent to him by Nataliya the week before. 

SO here is the postcard . . .





The image is one I found online and is a samba costume.  The samba came to Brazil with the influence of the Portuguese and  African immigrants.   When will Nataliya tell Marcello she doesn't read a note of music? . . .

Thanks for visitng.
