It's tomorrow! We are boarding tomorrow to spend 2 weeks in Brazil to meet our families and friends. It's been almost 9 months since we came to the US and it's the first time we're going to visit.
The news that arrives here is not very encouraging, starting with the exchange rate of the dollar that disturbs our lives a lot. But, let's go!
One certainty we have about this visit to Brazil: we will come back chubby! We have already ordered delicious food, after all, there is no better place to eat! We want to eat pizza with caturipy, French bread with white cheese, sprinkle cookies, milk pudding, feijoada, farofa and everything else we are entitled to! Missing the manioc puree; barbecue with picanha, coalho cheese and vinaigrette; the Arab food of São Paulo; the fair pastry; from Minas Gerais food; homemade cake (corn, orange, cornmeal, carrot with chocolate icing); passion fruit mousse! We won't be able to kill all our cravings in 10 days, of course, but a good part of them will be properly satiated!
I miss seeing temperature in degrees Celsius; to see kilograms and grams on product packaging instead of ounces and pounds; to see liters instead of gallons; to see road signs in kilometers instead of miles!
And, of course, most importantly, let's miss the people, family and friends who give us so many happy moments!
This trip is not to discover anything new, to do anything different, just to enjoy the simple things in life that we tend to value even more when we don't have access.
Brazil, wait for us, we are coming!
