I know people have an opinion or a thousand about Brazil. There's the whole thing about how politicians steal money and nothing works right. Sure, there really is a lot of bullshit happening. I agree with that completely.
Of course there's also the good stuff. Brazilians have got the small stuff down! Take today, it's a gorgeous day. The kids and I went to the park. We swung by Hortifruti (the fruits and vegetable store) and bought 8 oranges, half a perfectly ripe pineapple, 2 Haas avocados, a decent slice of watermelon, and two perfect papayas. The best part, all that cost me and economical R$12.36 ($7.19).
Ok, that's not really the best part. The best part was chopping up that bad boy of a pineapple pictured above and eating half of it as my late morning snack.
Seriously, the way to my heart is through pineapples! Or pizza.... or sushi... or meat... quite possibly wine as well... We're getting off the subject here.
What's one of your favorite little things about where you are at?
