While the first part of this post about how to understand a Brazilian focused on describing some more general attitudes or aspects, this post will try to unravel a few peculiarities that come up in social situations and behaviors.
As many as there are fish in the sea, there are different types of Brazilians. Brazil is a huge melting pot of cultures, races, beliefs and lifestyles. Therefore, if you have not lived in Brazil at least for a while, never think you will be easily able to pinpoint a Brazilian in a crowd just by the way they look or act.
One of the important lessons I have learnt so far is how plans and promises are made in Brazil and why they are not always kept.
