Last night (August 15) Capoeira Mandinga participated in the monthly Piedmont Ave. Stroll (http://www.piedmontavestroll.org/blog.html) by playing capoeira outside for almost 90 minutes. Yesterday was also Mestre Marcelo's birthday and in true capoeira tradition he declared his intention to play with everyone in  the roda. Considering that there were probably over thirty people present, that would be no easy task.
