Mensagem:  You  would  not believe the similarities between Texas and RGS. 

They were republics at the same time.
They were once under Spanish rule.
Their native language has been influenced by Spanish.  The Gaucho has the "linguajar do gaucho" and the Texan has Texican.
They see themselves as Texans/Gauchos first and Americans/Brazilians second.
They have their own music, dances, cattle/horse-related traditions.  Rodeos are common in both areas.
Gauchos are as proud of their churrascos as Texans are of their barbecues.
They have unique accents and slang.
They have heroes known for their size.  The Gauchos had a hero called "O Gigante".  His huge boots are in a museum (Bento Goncalves Museum?) in Porto Alegre.  The Texans have a hero called Big Foot Wallace.
Both were colonized by Germans.
Their capitals were moved.
Both are known  for large knives; the facao is common in RGS and the bowie knife is known in Texas.
The Gaucho wears the "pala", and the Texan wears the poncho.

And I could go on.....
