I didn't know a Portuguese person discovered California. I thought Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was Spanish. It turns out that was just a Spanish spelling of his name "Joao Rodrigues Cabrilho".

When my daughter-in-law first came to the U.S. from Brazil about 7 years ago, she went directly to Boston. She was so cold that she would put on all of the clothing she could. Made the decision to move to Atlanta. She is still cold............AND THIS PAST MONDAY SHE BECAME A US CITIZEN!!!

Well, tell her I said parabens!!

I happen to know there is a growing Brazilian population in the Atlanta area. I see most of it in Marietta,GA. I think the weather might be something to adjust to. For some odd reason, I live in a climate with mild winters and I want to move to a place where it gets cold.

Massachusetts has a large Brazilian population from what I know, as well as a large Cape Verdean population.

In an earlier post, I mentioned something about African-American lives with Henry Louis Gates Jr. and his segment on Cape Verdeans. I have a link here for that:African American Lives 2 . Profiles . Peter Gomes | PBS
