Where In The World is Matt ? Brazil Edition Day 10

Here is Matt's latest update.


When Cesar picked us up to go to dinner tonight, he asked if we would like to go get a sandwich for something different. I immediately thought that this would be a welcome break from all the eating we have been doing. I was wrong. This sandwich had a slice of grilled pork loin, a layer of ham, a fried egg, cheese, lettuce, grilled peppers and onions, and was served on a loaf of French bread. It was the size of a dinner plate. They just don’t eat light down here.

The restaurant was located on a corner and had overhead, roll up doors that were up. This allowed them to open up most of two walls to the sidewalk. The couple that ran\owned the place had been in business for 35 years in the same location and live in the building right next door. They served packaged frozen ice-cream treats, beer, soda, and cigarettes. They also offered a homemade mayonnaise that is just incredible. However, I’ll have to take Cesar’s word for it as I wasn’t brave enough to try any.
