Gaucha got her US tourist visa!!!!

Flar called me this morning from Brazil. The boys were there while we were on the phone, so they found out next, and then I remembered to tell Mom about it when she called, and then I called Wolf to tell him (and he told Sydb) so that I could post it and tell everybody else.

Yay!

This means that Gaucha will be able to come to the PWP this year, and Flar will probably take her to Las Vegas after that, and who knows what else. We may have to have a Brazilian themed PWP this year. :)

This is great. Coolness in the extreme.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have an American themed PWP? I mean, she gets enough Brazilian back home! :)

True, however, when you're that far from home (at least, speaking for myself), seeing some familiar things from home is comforting. I don't know how bad the culture shock is between Brazil and America (or vice versa), but when I visited Germany, I really missed home.

Plus, we get a lot of American ourselves, it'd be cool for us uneducated Americans to get some culture. ;)

True enough. Besides, a Brazilian-themed Tshirt design would be more interesting. ;)

And plus, Flar already has a churasco out back.

Considering that she still has only a little more English than I have Portuguese, and that she'll be very much immersed in American everything while she's here,

I think it will be quite appropriate to have a Brazilian themed party. In her honor.


Yeah, you're right. And you've already got the Churrasco out back. Maybe you could print out bi-lingual name tags for people, and a list of common phrases in both Brazilian Portugese & English to hang around the house in various places for both us and Gaucha to reference, to help facilitate conversation / interaction?

We'll have to think of a nifty T-shirt design, too. :)

um... The differences in Names are pretty much pronunciation, not spelling...

It would be cool to label lots of the house bi-lingually, though.

That took longer than getting hired by the federal government! At least that's one less hassle to keep Flar occupied.
Say, did it require sending naked pix of her to officials?

Re: It's about time!

No, but she did have to endure a 20 minute interview. Probably in English, but I don't know about that.


Totally Awesome!!!!! :-D

Yay!!!! It's about damn time!! Silly visa people.
