Hey guys! it is amazing to be back!
Life took a 180 degree turn but I managed to fall on my feet!
Quick recap for my long time friends,

Was living in the US, married and working with music. Marriage went boom, decided to go back to Brazil, now working on real estate.

Tiiiiiny pipe smoking culture around here. Max of 20 blends available that are produced here. The rest is literally smuggled through the boarder. No importation of tobacco allowed.

When moving to Brazil I was forbidded from bringing my tobacco hoard and the amount of pipes would raise too many eyebrowns at customs. So I gave all my tobacco, cigars and most of my pipes for a gentleman of the old forum who had contacts with the army and could give them this beloved (and heavy) present. (I forgot your name Sir, if you are reading this please contact me, I would love to hear how the boys enjoyed the presents).

I have no clue what happened to the old forum but Im glad the community is still strong.

I still have a few pipes that I brought with me on the plane and I purchased some tobacco here from a couple of guys that travel to the US.

Im just glad to be with you all!!!!

Welcome! Sounds like a hell of a ride - sorry you had to forfeit everything. No shipping to Brazil even?!?!
