Farroupilha 2010

I told you I had mush for brains. I just remembered that I had pictures to upload from my camera. D'oh! The funniest (or, most predictable) part is that I had forgotten some of the week's, ahem, special moments.

Here are some images to give you an idea of what Semana Farroupilha is all about. First and foremost, it's about Gaúcho Pride.

Second, it's about churrasco.

Perhaps there's a knife duel to determine who wins the pleasure of eating the tail?

For the past couple years, the "Se for dirigir, não beba" (If you're going to drive, don't drink) campaign has been strong.

Yes, this gaúcho agrees: "Don't drink. If you drink, go by donkey."

And (the collective) we DO drink.

Sometimes, as you know, a bit too much.

Proud or ridiculous? You be the judge.

For Sale.

The next post will include some of the more... Jenny-like... moments of the trip.
