I've been in Titanzinho, Fortaleza, for the last couple of days. Before comming back here I was a little anxious because it had been 6 month since I last came and was wondering if everything was alright with the kids there, and if our project advanced since we left.
But when we arrived we had a warm welcome from our friends as always, and we had some good surprises: Camilla, Juju, Davi and Dudu had found a sponsor, the surf club had gotten bigger with a second floor and spare rooms for the kids... I was really stoked to see everyone happy here.
We also did the Titan Kids movie premiere here in Titanzinho, and we were lucky to have Manu Chao as a special guest.
I've always been a big fan of his music and to meet him for real was like a dream. He is a very humble person and true inspiration...
We showed him the favela and the surfclub, and he stayed for the movie and then played some songs for everybody, we had a few drinks and grilled fish. Amazing night! here are the photos...
and big thanks to all the people who believe in our project and have helped us to make all of this happen! I hope we can live a lot of good moments like these in the future and help more kids get into surfing...
