Part 8 of a series of questions I asked my guests after their Brazilian vacations.
Question 8: What, if anything, has changed the most about Mr. DRL & DRL since leaving Canada?
My Mom: They are more relaxed, even though I am sure Mr. DRL's work can be quite a challenge, they are enjoying the experience and will never be the same again!!! Also, a bit of a change with preparing for baby's arrival.
My Bridesmaid & Her Boyfriend: Um, well aside from them both speaking another language and learning how to live in a completely opposite society they are still the same people we all know and love!
My Mother-in-law: We love the self-confidence they have attained by having to deal with Latin energy and language issues. Such an interesting life they lead, when a breakfast meeting with a politician is just another day at the office. Again, DRL's Portuguese is amazing.
Engaged Couple Friends: About 3 kilos! :-) We were so excited to hear the news! (DRL Note: at the point of their visit, 3 kilos was the extent of the baby weight gain!)
My Dad: Hard to see in two weeks but hopefully they've realized how fortunate they are to be from a country like Canada.
