Don’t be misled by the title — I’m actually still very much in Japan. In fact, I feel like I’m the only one I know who’s not going to Brazil anytime soon! Edu is set to travel back home early next year for a family event, and I recently found out that two friends are planning separate trips to visit Brazil for the first time this month.
Everyone is traveling to Brazil without me! （；￣д￣）
Anyway, one of the aforementioned friends asked me if I had any tips for her first trip. As a fellow gringa, my most valuable advice is essentially to try not to look like one.
