  2. It’s always hard express yourself in another language, but I’ll try. My name is Damião, from Brazil, and I went to UofL in 2007 (Fall) as an interchange student through of academic agreements between my University in Brazil (Unesp) and UofL. The Brazilian Studies Program gave to me a great opportunity in my life to live an unforgettable academic and personal experience. Dr. Medina was a fantastic support since his visitor in São Paulo (Brazil) when I met him. In my academic semester at UofL I had the same support of him and I could meet Dr. Hudson during a lunch with all Brazilian students and also professor Medina. So it’s really sad hear news about Hudson’s death. I hope the Brazilian Studies Program keep full of success and could bring much more experiences to students from both countries, scholars, teachers and others that had chance to participating of this program. Congratulations for this Blog in memoriam to Dean Hudson.
