The Country of Samba
by Yuka O.

I think Brazil is a brilliant country, because this country is famous for samba. I have never seen the samba before my eyes, but on TV. When I saw it the first time, I was surprised at the women who wore gorgeous costumes that exposed their skin so much. But at the same time, I was deeply moved by the powerful dance. They kept a smile while they performed the dance.
When they dance the samba, they wear high-heeled shoes. I stumble even walking when I put on the shoes. I was impressed by their superb footwork. It must be necessary to do such hard practice. The samba looks bright, but behind the scenes it is a backbreaking effort.
If I get a chance to see the samba at close range, I want to feel that heated atmosphere.
