So Day 165 in my efforts to be more Brazilian, I went shopping for Brazilian souvenirs to bring to the Americans! Nope, not baseball caps and t-shirts with “Brazil” on the front (although I did get a Sao Paulo Starbucks mug – couldn’t resist). My souvenirs are much more useful.
First, thanks to my friend’s generous gift, I bought some Nhá Benta to bring to the States. (See Day 142: Nhá Benta.) Yum! Ok, I’m also bringing a bunch of those illegal chocolate eggs (see Holy Egg Mania) – don’t tell.
Thanks to my students (we did a business case on the company and had an extensive conversation about the brand), I loaded up on Brazil’s famous eco-friendly beauty products – Natura!
And finally, you can’t go out of the country without a load of pão de mel…
… now can you?
