These images are the result of a period that I would define as one of the richest experiences I have ever had. For two monts, I lived with a bunch of Brazilian teens who were trying to find jobs and thus survive in Aspen/Colorado. And in spite of the harsh conditions, the overpopulated house, the shortage of money, the abundance of free time, you name it, today I tend to see it as a very peaceful time. For most of us, it was a tough adventure, as one would expect from a first time far from our comfortable organized safe middle-class families homes. The pics speak volumes.
