Mensagem: 

Hello there, I have a question for everybody.

 

Which sentence would you say ?

 

1- If I had been in Brazil I wouldn´t have done that

 

or

 

2- If I were in Brazil I wouldn´t have done that.

 

 

Which one is correct and why? If we follow the rules number 1 is correct but it sounds strange to me, why so?  Could anybody say something about the 2 sentences and which one is correct? Thanks folks.

 

Mauricio
