These were put outside the restaurant in the Mexican Hotel where I stayed. Bloody things were lethal! chilly balls! why why why would anybody put this shit in a bag and let greedy people like me snaffle them?

These were little fried dumplings…very lovely. Brazil has great food.

 photo 12-IMG_6342_zpsb73f70ca.jpg 

Not so sure about the bloody cake. This was the cake that the hotel got for me, on account of my birthday, after Sangeeta spent hours trying to explain to the hotel that it was my birthday and she wanted a cake delivered to my room. Apparently its not done in Brazilian Hotels. WTF?. It was a brick, seriously a brick.

but I was laughing about this at work and my boss was there, and he is Brazilian, and then he arranged for a beautiful cake for me, and all the chaps sang and made me right totally embarrassed and stuff. :)

Cheese balls, this was absolutely delicious! I must have eaten half of these.
