so when we dropped tricia off at the airport today, we went there to walk around; to shop at a brazilian market; to eat pasteis with creamy white cheese, green olives, and hearts of palm; to drink guarana, caipirinhas, and hand-squeezed lemonade; and to dine at a churrascaria (a Brazilian steakhouse) that serves the rotisserie meats rodizio-style.

we served up a feijoada, which is comprised of rice, black beans, salted meats, farofa, fried manioc, collard greens, and fresh oranges, and is brazil's national dish. feijoadas are usually served midday on saturday, and our version begins with caipirinhas and ends with a brazilian flan. and then we add in maybe one more caipirinha.

then, while he was taking care of my business, my thumb got unusually close to my mouth.
and before i knew it - oops! - it had slipped right in. so i started sucking on it.then, as if i had done it many times before, i curled my other fingers around my nose.
i liked this very much and decided right then and there, before my parents' very eyes, that i was grown up.
here was this morning's breakfast: fresh fruit, coffee, juice, homemade english muffins (made by aunt tricia), scrambled eggs, and fried plantains.
