The Japanese at dinner in Uberlandia I emailed Maria after this to say there was an interesting irony here. I knew I would have a language problem on this trip, since my Spanish only gets me so far with the Portuguese, and in Brazil they speak in a way that I can't extract the Spanish from the words too well ... anyway, I found myself on a bus and a plane and a dinner with over 25 Japanese who spoke no Spanish and no English (and no Portuguese). So my language problem turned out to be not Portuguese, but Japanese.
