To the woman travelling on the Northern line tonight from London Bridge to Kings Cross at about 7pm eating a tuna sandwich:
I would like to point out that no only was the smell offensive to everyone else stuck in that tube carriage, but eating with your mouth open is very unbecoming.
I implore you to refrain […]
When I was waiting in line to get Carnival tickets the girl I was with bought a CORN ice-cream! I tried it - wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it was a bit weird. The next day at the supermarket I saw “corn juice” - GROSS.
Brazilians are crazy about […]
We just spent a long weekend in Rio de Janeiro - happy Waitangi day to all you kiwi’s . I can understand why so many tourists go there. So far it has been the easiest city to stay in as an English speaker. Subway announcements, menus, even some signs are in English. I guess […]
This weekend, John and I went for a trip to the Brazilian Immigrants Museum (Memorial do Imigrante). Just like art galleries, museums are not normally my thing (although I am starting to turn around after visiting some cool places in America), so my expectation was very low. But once again I was pleasantly surprised. We […]
John and I went to MASP (Sao Paulo Museum of Art) the other day. Anyone who knows me knows that standing in a building looking at paintings really isn’t my thing, especially without a very nice glass or two of red wine to help ease the pain. But I have to say that there was something kind […]
Anyone who has talked to me over the last week will know that I have been struggling to find an apartment for our visit to Buenos Aires. Don’t get me wrong, there are tonnes of apartments there, but there are very few helpful websites. The few websites that are even slightly usable seem to be […]
A couple of weeks ago we were sitting on the beach in Morro de Sao Paulo, one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to.
In Brazil sitting on the beach is nothing like in NZ. If you need grilled cheese, there is someone selling it. Caiprioska? Someone will be selling that too. Açaí, pastel, sarong, […]
In Brasil they have peas and corn in everything, even burgers and hot dogs! We were on the metro yesterday and a little kid threw up - there were peas and corn in that too.
Panettone - a cross between a croissant and christmas cake. In this case it is filled with chocolate chips rather than fruit. DELICIOUS!
Going through the Argentinian Airport we knew that the baggage handlers are notorious for opening peoples bags and stealing things so we were sure to put anything valuable in our carry-on bags.
When we got into Brazil and I opened my bag, they had stolen a necklace (that I had wrapped as a gift) but left the […]
