OMG - hahaha. Well, Sparklee, being from Brazil the things people ask me are not too far from your, examples:
- "How come you are not dark??" Well, FYI Brasil is JUST like the US when it comes to races...MANY different country migrated to Brasil years ago...I am half Italian half German..NOT one bit Indian as in from a tribe in the Amazon LOL
- "Do you guys have drinking water????"
- "Do you have cell phones down there?"
- "Do you have a President?"
- "Is Brasil close to Russia?"
OMG people, geographyyyyy LOL
The dumbness is endless..lol
People have this image that in Brasil there are only naked people dancing or Indians hunting in the Amazon...and snakes. LOL
Brasil is VERY welcome economically and VERY much so one of the most modern countries these days. YES we have the bad, poor, rough areas too.
