Anyone else feel saudade for Brazil? If you are like me, you were once there.. but because of financial difficulties had to leave to make money elsewhere for awhile.

Anyone else feeling saudade for Brasil? (Saudade = longing for something, someone or some place in time)..

What do you miss most?

Muitas Saudades!! I spent 3 months in Brasil last summer (their summer), and had a blast! I don't know where you are from, but compared to the United States Brasil is soooooo free. You can walk down the street with a beer in your hand and not get arrested! I traveled around southern Brasil to all the beaches, and bought land in Bombas and am moving down there next year with my Brasillian wife. I cant wait.
The thing I miss the most would have to be snorkling around all the empty beaches. If you have a 4-wheel drive truck, you can go exploring all day. Here in Southern California there are just too many people! Ahh, some day.

I stayed for two years and left a year a go. In China now which I am sure you appreciate is a big change. Heres my list...

Caldo de Cana
Pastelle
Carnival
Agua de Coco
Playboy
Those awful TV programmes you get about 7 o clock weekdays on all channels.
Strangers being nice to you.
Brahma Extra
Students that are fun to teach.
Brazilian McDonalds
The way they cook rice
Beans

It's always the littel things you miss isn't it.
