I'm bored so I'm back. I probably dunno most of the people here anymore so, here it goes. I'm Kati, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Been to Interlagos a couple of times (not in the last couple of years though)... Supported Senna, Heidfeld (YES, I KNOW) and now Vettel. Two in three, not so bad...

Welcome back. Most of us are from the old days. A ton of people find the exit, but few seem to notice the entrance.

Not a lot, Andres got balder, Paul is still serving his time in prison and rumour has it that Dribs has a mini-me now. :)

Why does he have a mini-you?

Surely he'd much prefer a mini-him?

Off the top of my head, we don't hear much from:

Mike

John

Ankit

Graham

Eli

Ben

Jem

Danny

Eduardo

Nathan

Jez

And others who were gone before you left (like ykick, Player, Shane, etc).

Quite a few others still show up, just not very frequently. Others from our past appear to be always reading and never posting. People leaving is inevitable. New members joining doesn't seem to be, though. :lol:

I met Graham when I went to London, then after a few months we lost contact. Btw, I'm moving to the UK February!

You know, I knew I was asking for trouble when I wrote that <slaps head>. :)

When you say mini him do you mean him? :)

Good reasons!

However, whilst our fast food tastes better, your normal food tastes better than ours! and you have guarana :)

My mother is a pain in the a** too, can I send her to Brazil as well? :)

I dont like brazilian food. Or food at all. I'm VERY picky with what I eat. lol Basically that's McDonalds, Pizza, Pasta, and fried chicken. I do like Guaraná though and just so you know, some Tescos do have it for sale there. My bf has seen it in Corstophine, Edinburgh. It's a little more pricey than regular soda, but it's cheaper than those American Candy stores that have Strawberry Fanta, aka the best soft drink ever.

Sadly I can't eat fast food as I am a coeliac and its full of gluten... :( Love guarana though (Antarctica, of course). Our local Tescos does not do it :(

One of the best meals I have ever had was a churrascaria in Sao Paolo (can't remember where - man it was amazing).... oh and the cassava fries... yum...

(although I did get food poisoning in a shellfish restaurant in Recife - I should have known better really :) )

OK here are the rules. No seafood here. No street food like hotdogs and stuff. NO MAYO EVER. this is the deal with brazil and the reason why my bf never wants to come here. everything here can kill you, because ur body isn't ready for it. once i saw on tv people who died after eating fried shrimp with lime at a beach. it's just too warm, so things deteriorate quickly and normally aren't stored appropriately.

As for guarana, you have to check all the tescos around. it's pure luck, all the ones in central edinburgh or glasgow didn't have it, and Corstophine is like 15min driving away from city centre and they have it. you'd probably also find it if you search for Brazilian restaurants or communities. Like around Oxford St in London. We are everywhere, we are like pigeons. You are gonna find us.

I've never tried or heard of this Guarana drink before. I'm gonna look for it here in the UK now (not right now), but it sounds rarer than the Mountain Dew in DayZ. That's a reference that perhaps one other person on this forum might get; ignore it.

it even sponsors.Felipe massa! it's a drink made or an qmazonian fruit and it has similar effects as caffeine or red bull. it's typically Brazilian.
