March 17 in Brazil

Tuesday afternoon we quickly ate lunch and waited patiently for a big surprise.  After about an hour of just relaxing we were called to the back of the house.  We met Neinao who has been a graffiti artist for over twenty years.  He had recently come back from New York where he had finished a project there.  He had also done a mural at the Casa before.  The surprise was that we were going to help him create another mural near the one he already did.  Our job was to fill in paper cranes with spray paint, which he had created the outline for.  On the left side of the wall he made a little girl blowing bubble wand, which instead of producing bubbles it produced the cranes.  We formed an orderly line for people get a turn, which quickly turned into whoever got the spray paint can handed to them next.  I found the experience quite enjoyable, but others found the smell of the spray cans hard to handle.  Even though some did could not see the completion of it the mural turned out beautifully.
