We decided to visit Brazil a while back. But that was before the election here. Bolsonaro, the incumbent, lost that election. And we wondered whether this loser would pull a "Trump" Card and try to create chaos here in Brazil.

But we knew that the area of Brazil we wanted to visit (Bahia and other states to the northeast) went solidly for Lula. He's originally from these parts. Yet lo and behold, no sooner did we get here then Bolsonaro followers pulled a "January 6" in Brasilia, the capital. (But the army stepped in quickly and put the kibosh on that.)

But that doesn't mean 77 year old Lula is going to have an easy time getting Brazil back on the right track (or perhaps I should say 'left track'). Time will tell.
