Hi, to my Brazillian friends.

Oi todos os meus novos amigos Brazillian, welcome to my TravelPod. Por favor, leia sobre ou olhar para as imagens do seu belo país.

Des and I are having such a wonderful time here in Frederico Westphalen and the surrounding district, we shall be sad to leave. We are learning a great deal about Brazil, one way or another, and sometimes feel we interrogate the few English speaking people here. We still use many hand gestures and sometimes miss understand instructions which usually causes a great deal of laughter, and some embarrassment.

It's been very humid here and to get the amount of lush growth which is all around us, one would expect the country to be very wet. I learned the other day that the capital of Brazil is Brasilia, not Rio de Janeiro, and that the country of Brazil is about the size of the United States of America and has a population of about 190 million people.

No prizes for guessing the National Sport in Brazil. Just bring  up the name Pele and you have a friend for life, whereas if you mention Diego Maradonna, or The Hand of God incident, you’re likely to be asked to leave!

Many Brazilians are of German or Italian extraction, and the Dutch contingent, I’m told lives in Sao Paulo province. I’m not sure if there’s an Irish contingent!
