Too many stories from Carnaval to share.
Things I have gotten used to hearing in Portuguese thanks to this insanity:
Oiiii, garota! (hardly anyone calls me moça…)
Não tem um namorado brasileiro?
Teus olhos são verdes da verdade?
Fica comigo e vê a nascer do sol!
Vai embora comigo.
Não é americana. Mentirosa! Da California?! Mentirosa, mentirosa.
É brasileira. Não tem a cara americana nem a bunda americana. (among other things)
Tá doida, doida.
Poxa, que risada!
just…what the fuck is this madness.
