In steps :p

 

First I had a Brazilian girlfriend, who later became my ex-girlfriend. Then it was time for the Winter Olympics of 2010 and on the biggest Dutch forum, every year there is the 'support an exotic nation' thread (which I introduced here on Totallympics last year), so naturally I chose Brazil. I did so again for 2014, this time asking athlete Leandro Ribela a couple of questions. A year later I did that again, since he had quite an interesting project ot help children from the favelas (Ski na Rua - ski on the street), I published that on a Dutch website, he posted it on his Facebook and this new Brazilian biathlete (Bruna Moura) suddenly DM'ed me asking if I was an athlete or a fan. That led to her being without a doubt my best friend in the world now, almost 3 years later :)

 

And since the other young Brazilian biathlete is her best friend (together with me now :d ) and they absolutely always hang out together wherever they can, I'm now friends with both of them and whenever I visit them for a competition (this is the 3rd time) we mostly hang out together with the three of us :)

:lol:

 

Just to clarify: SHE contacted ME, not the other way around (I had only even read her name once as part of Ribela's answers to my interview about his project) :p
