1. You’ll never forget the 7×1.
It’s one of those things you never forget. “Hey, where were you when Brazil lost to Germany?”, we shall always say. Most of us lost part of our hearts that day. I know I did. I shall never enjoy soccer as long as the yellow shirt is maculated with the CBF logo.
2. You started drinking coffee at an early age.
Of course, coffee is not endemic to Brazil, almost every country in the world consumes it. But it is one of the biggest exports of Brazil’s economy and a regular in Brazilian kitchens, botecos, and restaurants. Espresso is widely available in every big city, but the coado is king at home for both adults and kids.
