Books and Coffee Shops

So, Luiza Trigo is now the official representative of IsAWonderfulWorld in Rio! Today she took one of the parts of my Surprise! intervention to the next level: she spread many books in Coffee Shops because a good reading can make anything more tasty.

I don’t know about you, but usually when I don’t have any book with me, I always take my coffee to go. On the other hand, if I have my paper friend by my side, I can stay there as long as the coffee, the pages or even the owner’s patience lasts.

Maybe I shouldn’t spend so much time with fictions, but I do like novels, the good ones, you know? Those that allow you to enter in someone’s personality and understand the world through a different point of view…

By the way, does anyone has a good reading recommendation? I just finished reading The Post-Birthday World and now I’m watching more tv series than I should...

Free coffee on the Subway Station!

So… following your request, today I went t 9:00am to the 23rd station at 6th avenue to offer some free coffee to people. The idea behind of that is that here in New York we are always in such a hurry that is hard even to find time to have a coffee before going to work!

It was a very good experience, people were very receptive and kind. One guy asked me: – Why? Why are you doing that? Nobody here does it! And My answer: That’s exactly why!!!

Another girl was exclaiming: – Uow, that could be the beginning of a love story!

I, personally, just like to imagine that in someway I can affect those people’s day and, by doing that, start a new chain of something good! : )

So, you choose to see that, you deserve it:

And once again, thanks for my friend Luiza Trigo for filming and photographing it! : )
