This blog is born without a specific theme in mind, but it’s likely to visit a number of topics I’m interested at, such as technology, soccer, photography, history, basketball, Brazil, Canada, biology, travel, food, human migration and innovation.
I struggled to find a name for it. For now, I’m sticking with “The bamboo raft” (“A jangada de bambu”, in Portuguese). Justifying a blog name feels like trying to explain a joke, but in this case the metaphor may not be obvious.
Native species of bamboos can be found in several parts of the world, including East Asia and South America. You know, being born and raised in Brazil, of Korean and Japanese descent, with an undergrad in Biology, a big Palmeiras supporter, somehow I found bamboos to be as good a fit as anything else.
I confess that “raft” was just added to make it easier to get the domain later 🙂 , but it also conveys the idea of floating around freely through places and thoughts.
