FuFu Life in Curitiba - Brazil
8th September 2010 | Part

Hey what's up guys? Here is the video of the Brazilian BBQ.

It's a very typical churrasco (BBQ) here in South of Brazil. Generally, fire will be set up around pieces of huge ribs and then grill the meat at least more than 6hrs to naturally burn the fat away.

While waiting for the meat, we were drinking beer chit-chatting, playing around with the kids, women preparing food like different types of salads, rice and other dishes, some of the guys cutting down the young palm trees for the shoots that gonna be grilled and eaten with the meat.

After nearly 6hrs later, the party finally started. Ken-ichi, my host brother and his friends couldn't wait to cut the meat and guests surrounded the table for the meat. The meat was tender, juicy and sweet! Parents of my host are staying on top of a small hill in Barra Velha. Part of the forest is owned by them. The house has a huge living and dining area. There's 4 small houses around the main house for the guests. What a VILLA!

My host is a Japanese descendant. He and his brother (third generation) don't speak Japanese but their parents speak perfect Japanese. Hence i spoke Japanese with his parents and some other guests because my Portuguese is still very bad. They enjoyed the conversation with me because they had finally the chance speaking Japanese. LOL

That is fabulous... I learn something new about Brazil (i.e. the Brazilian Churrasco/BBQ - didn't know it took SIX hours to get ready or, more interestingly, how folks gather around to chat during that waiting time) and you again reminded me on the small bits of magic that happen when we travel (i.e. you speaking Japanese to your host's parents in Brazil).

It's a wonderful opportunity and you are making the most of it, my friend. Hurrah! :D

唔識葡萄牙語,不過聼到日文交談,約略都知道講乜。

間屋真喺好大,連出面嘅山都喺佢哋擁有,確實好有米喔。
