Praia da Costa is the name of the neighbourhood, like Copacabana, in Rio. The city is called Vila Velha, you've probably seen the name on the packaging of a Garoto chocolate (Talento, Serenata, etc...). :P

Oh, I know Vila Velha. I mean, never been there, but it is a pretty known place I think. :)

That's all for R$38,00. A double whooper with cheese combo costs R$18,50 at Burger King, for comparison. But this here fed six people and there were leftovers for breakfast on sunday.
This new baker we found lives near our house and even puts symbols in the food to mark the flavors of the rissoles:
none - ham and cheese
moon - minced mead
star - palm heart
circle - chicken
square-shaped ones - hot dog sausage

There's also cheese balls, mini coxinhas and fried kibbeh. The dough for all of them (except the kibbeh) is the same as a coxinha.
The arrangement was really nice, but I wasn't quick enough to get a picture before everyone started attacking.

He should get a Nobel for that. Seriously, it's incredible how this idea is not used everywhere, I hate having to take a bite at food I may not like to find out if it's the flavor I want.

Also (a bit late but) happy birthday!

Cafe near my job somehow writes the flavor on the salgadinho itself, it kind of looks like they burn it into the dough. Looks cool and it's safe to eat.

As a nordic guy, what do you think about the average brazilian behavior? I mean, not the ones you lived with (brazilians are always nice with foreigners), but the ones you don't know, the folks on the streets, etc.

I'm just asking because (I swear I'm not elitist) I really hate the lack of politeness and respect (and even self respect) of the average brazilian folk. I know that there are stupid people everywhere in the world, but it seems that half of them live here, oh my gawd! I'm trying to imagine how a person from a civilized country look at this crap.

Well by the time I lived there the ones I knew slowly started treating me as everyone else, which varied from family to family.

I actually felt that people on the street, the normal streets where you could walk that is, were fairly free spirited and if anything upbeat, which certainly was an adjustment for my cold Norwegian heart. People there hug eachother, people here stand on opposite sides of the bus stop. No one in Brazil struck me as a very experienced outside of their own turfs however, very few had much of an idea about even neighboring countries, even middle class families, but I'm not to judge that, I don't know how the education system works towards teaching that. I was never fluent in Portuguese so maybe I just never got to fully experience what you are referring to? I did experience some racism though, just for being foreign.

I can only speak from my own experience of course, but the rich circle in Itaim was sort of removed from common human compassion and empathy. They had what they needed and unless you or or something related to you would impact their finances, for better or worse, they treated you like trash. I have a lot of contempt for the rich in Brazil, and my ex came from a family of higher class status so I got to experience the very ugly side of that. I usually spent most of my time helping the maids, who were very friendly and down to earth.

Swap "buss driver" for "driver" and you described the situation in many of the big cities in Brazil :P

I don't know, maybe I'm overreacting, but it really pisses me off how some people have no respect, like not giving the elders or pregnant woman their seats on the public transport, or driving like horses, or listening to music, horning or shouting late at night...

Seriously, what's wrong with these people?!

Oh, wow! Really?! What happened?

As I said, brazilians really love "gringos", try to be close, are friendly and communicative, helpful...

It's odd to me what you are saying.

Never heard of "afu = a fuder" thing. Actualy I never heard of "a fuder" as an expression xD

But ... should be noted that "fuder" is something like "fuck" and those that you said are closer to a "fuck yeah" than actualy bad cursing or sexual things

Also, in a unrelated news,
We suck at the competing spirit that is like "it is ok, you tryed" and everything that is about the olympic feel =P

But still... I think the brazilian Coke tastes so much better than the american one. I have no fuckin' idea why, but whenever I go to US, Pepsi is the only way to go.

Yeah, but still: Adriana Lima > Alessandra Ambrosio.

Lets guess what will be featured in the Opening?

índios/Colonization;

Carnaval;

Futebol;

Bahia;

Samba;

What else?
