Interesting Cultural Experience
Turns out he was a very nice young man from Brazil, and while he didn't speak English he spoke near-perfect Japanese. I was able to communicate with him in my pretty crappy Japanese, and within moments we were having a very animated, very stimulating conversation. Needless to say, this was the first conversation I'd ever had in which both parties involved were not speaking their mother tongue (excluding stupid canned dialogue in Japanese class).
It was pretty cool.
In fact the conversation I had with this Brazilian dude (named "Deco"...like "The Magician") was, bar-none, better than any conversation I've had with a Japanese person who isn't Nori.
