Brazil: Saudade

Having Kristina around was so great on so many levels. Not only was she a total work horse, but she spoke great Portuguese, and she brought a whole host of new jokes and clean undies with her. Things that we sorely needed! The Portuguese was especially handy, as Eric seemed to be having some trouble getting a grip on it and often landed embarrassingly in the wrong bathroom. Kidding aside, it was such a special treat to have a wonderful and much missed piece of home land in our arms. And we experienced great saudade (what Brazilians feel when it rains, and they stay at home depressed longing for lost loves) when Kristina left us. We are missing our third Angel. Sigh....

Saudade...i think we all have this type of word in our heart. In romania we call it "deprimare"
