Cultural Jealousy

I don’t speak the language.

In the first hour of being here I tried to order a hamburger
and ended up with a glass of bubbly water.

They were out of hamburgers.
When the waiter tried to explain the other options in Portuguese
I got flustered,


I gave up and just asked for a water.

I’m staying in a house here with four Germans
so I’ve learned as much German as Portuguese.

Still I feel this desire to go out and buy a flag.
