    Rocks I wish you the best.

    I hope you enjoy your trip.

    You are one of my favorite people. You have come a long way on your journey as a truck driver. I have followed you from the beginning. You are now much more confident. I am so proud of you.

    The time I was fortunate enough to meet you in Seymour, In. will always be a good memory for me. It is hard to believe that visit was 5 years ago.

    I wish you well.
     
    Rocks and TruckDuo Thank this.

    Brazilian coffee is SOOOO strong that one wouldn't like to have a big cup of it... And to put water in it just "ruins" the flavor... :biggrin_2552:

    [​IMG]

    Someone here in the USA asked me to bring him a Whiskey "shot glass".... and I was thinking... hmmm.... Since Brazilians don't use Whiskey "shot glasses", I might get him a little coffee mug instead... Coffee is the most popular drink in Brasil... it's considered to be a "trademark" in that country...:yes2557:

    Well... I might as well get him a cachaça glass...

    [​IMG]

    Cachaça is an EXTREMELY strong alcoholic beverage... as strong as Tequila...
    It's clear color, made from sugar cane... It's very popular in Brasil and also a "trademark"...
    Folks drink that in small glasses and sometimes mix it with crushed ice, lime and sugar... that's what they call "caipirinha"... the Brazilian national drink...

    A big mug of that stuff would have you wired for days. I'd get about 3 out of the vending machine in the office first thing and not get up from my desk until lunch.

    I vaguely remember a few dinner outings that involved the caipirinha cart rolling out. With a group, the bartender will bring out all the ingredients out on a small cart and make the drinks tableside. For a rowdy group, a busboy is employed to keep the supplies replenished. At one place, we actually cleaned out their supply of cachaça.

    A little trivia for those that haven't heard much Portuguese - the letter "c" with a tail is pronounced like an "s". Also most words with the letter "t" are pronounced like "ch." After about a dozen caipirinhas, you start speaking Portuguese as a side effect.

    That right there is funny. I guess it starts with playing with tonka trucks in the mud while eating, then moving up to the real ones once you acquire a taste for dirt.
