New Slideshow: Brazil by Loretto on 8 November 2012 2:26pm
 
The closest we USA fans can get to Michael Palin's Brazil right now is the new Home page slideshow. Very colorful place, Brazil.

I wonder what the enormous white bowl thing is for?

I agree Loretto, in fact seeing it on the series has made me want to move there!! Needless to say I won't be...!

My brother-in-law worked there for a while a few years back (he's also worked in Siberia, and a few other countries. He was also offered Iraq but turned that down, can't think why haha!). He was an electrician, with his own business but contracted-out I think they call it, and he was doing the electrics in Coca-cola factories, etc.

Anyway, at one point his wife was able to join him for a holiday there and they said it was wonderful. Can't recall which part they were in.

It looks a fabulous country (aside form the poverty - oh boy what am I saying??!!). The wildlife, the natural beauty of the place, plus stunning beaches and a great nightlife!!

:)

Enjoy! When are you meeting up with himself?

Ffs Anne, I thought I could talk. You would make JTM appear to be mute.

Loretto his talk was last Friday night I didn't make it, had no babysitter. Meh.
 
Re: New Slideshow: Brazil by Loretto on 9 November 2012 12:27pm
 
Ah, that's too bad. I would have babysat for ya!!!

I doubt he'll make it to the US, I just feel that he has some big competition here with Andrew Zimmerman and Anthony Bourdain, they a huge risk takers, those two guys would eat ANYTHING! Zimmerman once ate a snake's heart, yeah, it was still pulsating with a beat!

I've just read the part of the book with the photo of 'the enormous white bowl thing' and it is a structure on top of a palace in Brazilia.
