Hello Readers, I'm so sorry for today because I’m not inspired, but, I read the comments and Naheed from Pakistan asked me about Lambada. This loan word come from Portuguese language is a music genre created in the seventies. There was a soap opera in Brazil with a lot of scene with Lambada. Naheed, I’ve never dance Lambada, but, I know is a sensual dance. At this time, in the seventies, a lot of sports center begun teach Lambada and some sports center mix Lambada with gym and they created Lambeorbica (Aerobic Lambada). Naheed you can see some example at YouTube. Put the search key “Kaoma ensinando Lambada”. This video teach in English about Lambada, by the way, the translation is “Kaoma is teaching Lambada”.
Hello Trudi, You talked about barbecue lamb. I usually do barbecue for my family, but, in the past I’ve done barbecue for 20 persons. In this barbecue I cooked meat, chicken, sausage and pork rib. Some time I cook fish at barbecue with a lot of sauce. It’s delicious. Nowadays, I hire a person to do a barbecue for a big party.
Barbecue it’s a typical food in the South of Brazil, but all country usually cook at barbecue.
Another part of barbecue is a “Caipirinha”, I love so much “Caipirinha”. This is a alcoholic drink made with “Cachaça” lemon and sugar. Cachaça is made from sugarcane as strong as vodka.
Trudi, you can get how to prepare a Brazilian Barbecue at YouTube, put the key search “Proper Brazilian Barbeque”, this video will show you in English how to prepare a Brazilian Barbecue. If you have some curiosity, you can use a key search "Churrasco", barbecue in Portuguese.

Vlad, here in Brazil you can have anytime for social relationship. There isn’t any rule about time you to communicating with colleagues. Only the rule for lunchtime. It depends on the company, this lunchtime is flexible or not. It’s usually a colleague ask to other, do you want to drink coffee? In this moment you can talk about anything. The point is, the professionals have to know what their priorities and when they have to give to the boss the outcome.
