Abstract

Writing travel memories is not an easy task.1 Organizing ideas and emotions is challenging because it makes us relive some unpleasant experiences. At the same time, it allows us to relive some moments that passed faster than we would have liked. This text is not the result of a thorough and systematic study. It is not intended to be a sort of guide for other students. It is an unpretentious attempt to share some of the experiences I have had in the past twenty-four months, which includes two different periods: a short stay in the United States, and the period after my move to Portugal to study for a doctorate in African Studies. This chapter is an attempt to bring together experiences of racialization that I lived or witnessed on these trips from the point of view of my daily life as a Brazilian immigrant2 in a foreign country.
