2012 Rio Body Painting Art in Brazilian Carnival Andrea Martins

I think the video clip “2012 Rio Body Painting Art in Brazilian Carnival Andrea Martins” is beautiful.

And I left the following comment on the video,

Beautiful without being sexual! Wish I could be there at 2012 Brazilian Carnival!

which I got this reply

@KemptonLam thank you so much for this enormous compliment…this is what I have been struggling for years and years!!! One of the best comments ever received in more than 10 million views…this is what I always fought for, remove this misappropriation of Brazil Carnival. Thank you so much!!

and my respond to that

@belavistario I am glad my comment made you happy. The lady in the video (and how the video is shot) gave me a wonderful sense of beauty, energy, and excitement that I know I will feel in a Brazilian Carnival! Whoever filmed the video (I don’t know if it was you) did a wonderful service to show a wonderful side of Brazil to us! Keep up the good work.

P.S. Here is a Chinese reply I left to a Facebook comment “太大膽啦••• @_@'”,

大膽可能有點,但我認為絕非色情。巴西的風土人情、文化背景及個人開放程度不同,難以中國人的尺度作準。再者是一年一度的巴西加年華盛事,我看來覺得健康有活力。
