I brought a few things, mostly Brazilian cookies and chocolates, for the family, and also a great book. I am loving to read my lingua-mater and to refresh my knowledge of Brazilian history! Eduardo Bueno is not a historian bu t a journalists and his books are very popular. This is the latest edition of his comprehensive Brazil: A History. I am still in the second chapter, but enjoying every page. Like the page about a coincidental encounter of two Danish men, an encounter that precipitated the discovery and the lifetime study of pre-historical caves in the state of Minas.
