Brazilian Challenge Day 65: The Maid’s Bed

So how Brazilian am I becoming? We are finally going to have someone sleep in our house.

Ok, it is only going to be 2-3 nights a week, and it is for a good reason (one which I will post in a couple weeks). So we busted open the box to the maid’s bed.

It’s more of a cot than a bed, really. And kind of low to the ground. Folds in the middle. I only spent a couple minutes on it, but it didn’t feel all that comfortable, but not UNcomfortable either.

We actually have a pretty decent blow-up bed that IS quite comfortable, but the problem is space. The blow up bed takes up pretty much the entire “maid’s room” alone, plus we use are currently using the room as storage. Though we will be reorganizing our things before the sleep-over situation, a person still needs a bit of room to move, hence, the small bed.

Next step, finding a place in other parts of the apartment for all of the stuff.

    A sleep-over maid?! It’s sooooo old! My grandma had one. My grandma has gone 30 years ago, but the maid is still alive, over 90, and now she lives at my aunt’s, who takes care of her. As many maids of her generation, she became a member of the family.

  2. I saw that a lot in Rio, where the family took care of the maid when she got old.
    Having a maid that sleeps in your house is still pretty common here. I’m the weird one for not having one. Actually, it is a sleep over baba.
