Happy Hours, restaurant visits, Brazilian-related events and exhibits
I can at least fake it pretty well. Brazilians have told me I sound like a Brazilian with a strangely limited vocabulary.
My favorite memories are getting lost and then finding my way in Ouro Preto at night, and the feeling of walking from the busy streets of Leblon/Gavea to the vast open space of Lagoa.
I studied Portuguese at SUNY Albany just for fun. About half of the music I listen to is Brazilian. My favorite is probably Jorge Ben but I also love Caetano, O Terco, and Novos Baianos, among others.
