Caipirinha is basically the national drink in Brazil. Ice, lime, cane sugar and cachaça is all you need to make a good caipirinha. Because of it’s simplicity everybody can make a decent caipirinha but you need real art to make a very good one. They drink it at any hour and in any occasion, before eating, during eating, after eating, always. Sometimes they prefer vodka instead of cachaça (in that case they call it caipivodka aka caipirioska) or different fruits (e.g. strawberry instead of lime).
Happy new year!! Wow your trip sounds great and not too work filled which is nice. Lots of pretty girls…did any take a liking to you? My holidays were nice, I got to see Lauren and Kate which was fun since we were all off school. But now I am back at school, and starting to look for teaching jobs, which should be a challenge.
Talk to you soon
don’t work too hard!
Actually yes, one did, but you won’t squeeze any more details out of me
It looks like I worked enough, or at least I produced good results, cause the man who wanted me to go there is already talking about a second trip!
How are Kate and Lauren doing? Say hello to them!
And break a leg for your jobs seek!
(do you say “break a leg” in Canada?)

[...] Of all the spam I received in my life, this is definitely the nicest. A mere few hours after I posted Caipirinha, a cachaça producer posted a comment with their recipe and a link to their web site. They have to have a robot connected to gogle alert and automatically scanning blog posts. Since this site is mostly useless, I decided to approve that comment even if it was spam, just removing the URL to avoid google bombing. At least this blog can be useful to somebody to promote their product. [...]
About the recipe, we are always searching people that talk about cachaça and caipirinha. It’s a way we have to promote our drink. We don’t have a robot but we love Internet and we are always surfing!
Thanks for your comment – it shows that our work is working! And we hope that one day, you can drink our Cachaça Gabriela and proof that it is really nice!
Hugs from Brazil!
Wow, I’m happy to help you spread the word then!
