I'm on my on my 5th day in Brazil and I've started to get a little homesick. Not too bad but I've started missing the little things: friends, my car, bed, daily routine and California food.
After all the amazing food, drinks and time spent out, nothing hit my comfort zone until I received a home cooked meal.
I was graciously invited to eat dinner at my dear, sweet coworkers home today. I met her amazing husband (who is an outstanding cook) and her two adorable children.
I was a little nervous at first because of the language barrier but everything went perfectly. I had homemade cannoli, salad, wine, homemade strawberry jam with pan de queijo and fried bananas with ice cream. Simple, delicious and made with love.
I will never forgot this day and the hospitality I received. I am truly grateful to have made a great friend from a co-worker.
Feeling truly blessed and no longer home sick, yay!
Mutio obrigado Sheila, Paulo, Bia and Eduardo!
