BLOCO VOMIT LEAVES brAZIL - A NATION CELEbrATES
OK we're all back now, and suffering from the most severe culture shock, three week caipirinha hangover and jet lag. It appears I had a wife, two kids AND a job here in Edinburgh, all along! Boy was that a surprise. They even recognised me. The wife wasn't too delighted with the coconut fibre table cloths, but they'll please the mother-in-law, and the kids were pleased with the Brazilian football and the scale model of Olinda. Meanwhile I have a hide-skin pandeiro that may never be taken out of its bag, two bottles of "51" cacacha and a bottle of homemade cacacha from Minais Gerais.
