Boas abobrinhas–as Brazilians say–are the good little oddities in life. They are the little things that make a place tick, that make it unique and that sometimes make it the same as everywhere else. The anecdotes you’ll find here are about picking up and moving on, for the best of reasons. They’re about discovering new things in a new city, a new country and a new continent. Specifically, they’re about a Canadian finding her way in São Paulo, Brazil.
The “her” mentioned above is me, Jill Langlois. I’m a journalist by day and, well, a journalist by night, too, I suppose. I write, edit, copy edit, research, and I blog now too. I’ve worked for publications like The New York Times, USA Today, GlobalPost, The Globe and Mail, SPIN, Paste, This, FASHION Magazine, Spinner, Time Out São Paulo, Maisonneuve, Eye Weekly, FLARE, Exclaim!, Chart, The International, Venus Zine, Shameless and the Ryerson Review of Journalism.
