BAD things about Brazil


Being a fresh gringo to Brazil has given me some insights on the cultural differences between Brazil and the U.S. Some of cultural differences can lead to some problems. Take this story for example…

Being new to Brazil I was trying hard to make Brazilian friends and get integrated into Brazilian culture. After a few weeks of living in Brazil, I was finally invited to my first party and I was really excited! This was a great opportunity for me to make some friends, practice my Portuguese, and see how Brazilians party. Read “What do Gringos Really Think About Brazil?”

One of my English students wanted to have a class on Sunday morning, but because I really wanted to have a good time at the party, I told him I wouldn’t be able to teach him that day, even though I could’ve really used the money.

When the day finally came, I was so excited I couldn’t think about anything else. I was told the party started at 9pm, but I arrived a little late, at about 9:15. I walked up to the door and I could see through the window that there was a family having dinner…

I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t even know the person who’s house it was! I called my friend that invited me to the party but he didn’t answer his phone. I thought maybe the party had been cancelled…

I waited around for awhile for my friend to return my call, but eventually I just went back home, defeated.

I decided to just watch a movie and forget about the party.

At about 1am I awoke from the sound of my phone. The friend who had invited me to the party was calling. I picked up the phone and he told me the party was awesome and asked me why I wasn’t there…

Little did I know that Brazilians have a different concept about time. It was too bad that I missed out on the party because I wasn’t used to Brazilian culture. But I sure learned my lesson…
