Yes - once many years ago, for 6 months. Never been back. Also went to Portugal (and Macau, but only found one old waiter who spoke Portuguese).
When I'm in the mood, quite good I think.
Not really. Go to Brazilian music concerts / gigs quite often.
1st learned about Brazil via Amado, Guimaraes-Rosa, Braga, etc. Then, the music! I've been in love ever since: bossa-nova, samba, MPB - esp Caetano. Samba on rare occasions. Wish I were Brazilian, but I'm not - I am who I am. Maybe next time...
Anyone who's interested in speaking portuguese should come.
