Yesterday was Fred´s grand party. For the last 4 years, him and his girlfriend´s family have been putting on these cultural parties where everyone is to dress-up like they are from the country (plad shirt, straw hat, patched jeans), dance Forró and eat and drink lots of good food and beer/pinga.

I was helping Fred all day prepare for the party getting the drums and chairs and tables. His band was going to play so they rented a huge sound system. The party was great... a lot of friends from work came.

At the end of the bands first set Fred calls me up on stage. Again I was introduced as the special guest from Canada. We had planned to do a little joke for everyone. I said something short into the microphone thanking the host for the great party and Fred would translate what I said into something very long and exhausted and then I would say something long saying how great is has been living in Brasil... how welcome I feel and the great friends that I made and how I get to experience the culture etc... and he would translate "he says thanks."

Fred always

wicked piano key tie!
changes whatever I say to someone when he translates for me... especially if it´s a girl he´ll mostly say "he thinks you are beautiful and he wants to go out with you sometime..." ah the power he holds!!!!

Then we broke into... "have you ever seen the rain" with me on lead vocals. Oh yeah, we even practiced it before hand. I got many compliments on my great voice (cough).
