Andreh is an American married to a Brazilian. He lives in Brasilia and teaches English there. We discuss his experiences in Brazil, his thoughts on Brazilian customer service, and the current political situation. (Please note that this was recorded a few months ago, so his views on Dilma's impeachment are not based on current information.)
