Behold, the glorious result of 13 hours (yes, I counted) of slaving away on my laptop! Can you hear the angel music?
Seeing as how Mandingueira was growing fairly decently, I decided it was time to do some upgrading. So, I went to my super-talented friend Formigao, and he created for me the beautiful header and logo that graces your screen as I speak. Make sure you check out more of his work, and others’, at http://capoeiraart.deviantart.com/! Then, I tested my hand at the impossible in summing up 400 years of development in capoeira, and blatantly dismissed 200 years of feminist theory (but for the greater good). Finally, all new visitors will now know where to go when they first arrive, and for “veteran” readers, show your love! If you have any feedback, you know where to find me!
Hopefully, this is just the beginning. I’ll keep adding to and improving Mandingueira as things progress, and I hope you all enjoy it!
