Mensagem:  Something that I often notice is the "Brazilian goodbye".  It lasts about 15 minutes.  To shorten it to a minute or two (which seems long to an American) is deemed insulting.

The "Brazilian invitation" is also unique.  It is difficult for non-Brazilians to know if it is sincere or just "bosta".  :If the invitation comes with a map and/or lots of exclamations of "Really!", it is sincere,  Maybe.  kkkk
