I am in Tokyo again for a few days ….my vacations. My vacations include work also because it seems that I will always want to work answering requests, given feed back to patients/clients..but  what gives me the real sensation of being in vacation is to BE with myself alone for some moments in a place different from my  day to day in São Paulo.

I wanted to come back to Tokyo, and more when I heard of Kyoto  ISTH meeting and even more after the tsunami and earth quake…I wanted to find reasons to be here: first was a love trip, quickly it meant work trip also: I ended with an oral presentation about Hmoaction and P-TET project and HERO  presentation in 3 beautiful posters explaining the phases !

Dear bloggers and visitors, I have my moments of doubts, insecurity and irritation when I can’t do the things as well as I wished or when I wanted something and couldn’t have...but they pass so quickly nowadays!!! I want to share with you that after my being in this marvelous gardens called HAMA-rikyu …it is where I stood still and felt so much .
