The Hills

I promise, this isn’t about an MTV reality show starring whiny, privileged bleach blonds. It’s about hills! Real hills! You know, those things on an incline? Anyway, something Brazil has a lot of is hills. I don’t think I can name one place here that is perfectly flat. And I don’t understand why anyone here pays to go to the gym. Just walk through your neighbourhood! It’s like nature’s Stairmaster. Especially the sidewalks, since most of them are actually a series of small ramps leading into people’s parking spaces directly in front of their houses. So as you walk up a street (which is walking up a hill), each little ramp creates a new step! (I think they built everything like this on purpose. It counteracts all the delicious bakery treats we eat here.)
