Mensagem:  Thanks for the reply. So, you're off to SP! Hope you have a good trip. One of the words in your reply was missing a letter. It is still understandable but the missing letter makes it a prophecy. You said the Portuguese leaner is going with you. If you put an r in leaner it changes the whole sentence. As it is, it means he's going to lean on you a lot for help in Portuguese. You can order his Brahma, his calabreza, his caipirinha, etc. Just let him pay the bill!! The last time we lived in Brazil we took our dog with us. She too did not know that she was a dog....she thought she was just a short person. Born in Quito, she traveled to the states, to Europe, back to the states, to Brasilia and then back to the states. She passed away last year at the age of eighteen! Mostly poodle, she grew to about fourteen pounds (6.3 kg) and thought the best place in the world was on the lap of the right front seat passenger in the car. She loved to put her head out the window and smell all the neat stuff....no matter where, Brazil, France, Belgium, Germany, Holland,Ecuador, the US.....she just loved to travel and see things. In Europe she could go into restaurants with us. She would sit under the table and was very good. Even if there was another dog there she ignored it. She knew that after the meal we would give her some scaps (sobras) outside near the car. I remember once in a small restaurant/bar in Bad Godesburg in Germany the owner apologized for some broken glass on the floor an asked us if we would just put the dog up on a chair. Well, we did. She sat there and watched everyone just like it was normal. We sure do miss her, Tom
