Cuz that's what friends are for!
My very good friend, Francis and I at the airport just before I board the plane to South Afrika. I really appreciate all he showed and taught me during my second visit to Brazil. Thanks buddy I will never forget your hospitality!!!
Francis and his family own a vegetarian restaurant called Laranja Melhor in Sorocaba (about 40 mins-depending on traffic-from Sao Paulo). While staying with his family I helped out at the best restaurant (veggie or not) I have ever eaten at, and I am not just saying that because the owner is my friend. You gotta try this food! (Rua da Penha, 999-Sorocaba/SP) This is a pic at the restaurant with Francis' brother who I call 'Boss', Patricia and I working hard. :)
Everywhere you look in Brazil you see gorgeous sky. You must go there (eat at my friend's restaurant) and see it for yourself.
This was such an interesting tree I couldn't pass up taking a photo of it and being a tree hugger I had to pay my respects.
A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?" The survey was a huge failure... In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant. In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant. In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant. In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant. In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant. In South America they didn't know what "please" meant. And in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
