We found that knowing a little Portuguese was very helpful. We had an absolutely incredible trip! Words in an email can’t describe how amazing our time in Brazil was. And it was really nice knowing a few things on the menu! In fact, if someone gave us an English menu, I often wanted the Portuguese one so we knew what we were looking at! All of your suggestions were great! We experienced all traditional Brazilian dinners the second week while we were at the resort, so that was really fun. I’m dying to make Moqueca and hopefully somehow make pão de queijo!
