A Lazy Sunday in Sao Paulo

Today was an easy day for Time Irado. As posted earlier, there was a time change where we adjusted to the Brazilian Day Light Savings schedule to "Spring Forward". Given the time change and another rainy day, Time Irado decided to take a lazy day. Being a tourist on the weekends and experiencing new cultures can be surprising exhausting.

This afternoon, Time Irado headed to the local American Friendly O'Malley's pub for a late lunch, NFL games, and of course some beers. We were celebrating Katie's fiance, Ryan's, birthday. This birthday did not include any star sitings such as running into Vince Young or Jesse Palmer like Ryan may be use to, but his team, The New York Football Giants, pulled off a late game win versus Buffalo Bills. For lunch I had another great meal consisting or a double cheeseburger with chili and fried egg, of course accompanied by fries and coleslaw. After the game it was back to get a much needed workout in and stretch the back out by doing some Yoga. On tap for tonight is a movie to get rested for the week three in Sao Paulo.

In honor of Ryan's birthday, I have included the words to the traditional Brazilian Happy Birthday Song that we have heard on several occasions at local establishments.

Parabéns pra você, (Congratulations to you)
Nesta data querida. (On this dear date)
Muitas felicidades, (Much Happiness)
Muitos anos de vida. (Many years of Life)
Hoje é dia de festa, (Today is a day for parties)
Cantam as nossas almas. (Singing from our souls)
Para o/a menino/a Ryan, (To the child Ryan, "Im not sure if this changes as you become an adult or not?")
Uma salva de palmas. (A round of applause)

Good Night Sao Paulo
