Loren is an American married to Brazilian veterinarian Monike. I chat with them about how they met and the interesting misunderstandings and cultural differences they have encountered. Loren is learning Portuguese by reading Mônica comics and watching Zorra Total.

Mike is an American who has visited Brazil three times over the past three years and hopes to eventually spend a year living there. He talks about his experiences (mostly in Rio) and why he considers Brazil his favorite place on earth.
Mike keeps up to date about Brazil on Twitter by following @10kjuan, @brazzil, @thebrazilbiz,@thebrazilshow, and of course @brazilianisms. He's currently reading The Masters and the Slaves by Gilberto Freyre. He has gotten to know and hang out with many cool Brazilians he met on CouchSurfing.
