My Place with my Family in Brasilia, Brazil by Anna Mendes



In March 2020, four days before my flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina closed the borders due to the COVID-19 pandemic and I had to fly from Rio to Brasília immediately. My siblings live here in a beautiful residential complex and they are almost neighbors of each other. It's only 30 minutes from the center of town, but still looks a bit wild, almost like being in the countryside. And that's where I've been stuck ever since. I thank them all heartily. Love, love, love, love.
/// I feel good here with my family, but I also want to express my immense sadness for Brazil, my country that I love so much, for having one of the largest numbers of coronavirus victims in the world. So many deaths could have been prevented.
