Yesterday at the Airport, I was studying my swedish flash cards when I heard a voice attempt to say my name while pointing to my ID badge in amusement. I looked up and saw 5 gentleman about to board an airplane going to Las Vegas. I noticed their passports which weren't US issued and asked where they were from. They didn't really understand me and hoped I asked where they were going so they said 'Las Vegas.' Then one of them said something that caught my ear and I asked again. When he said 'Brazil,' my eyes lit up and I said excitedly 'Voces falam portugues? Que beleza minha cara!' (You all speak Portuguese? What a beautiful thing my beloved friends)
They all looked in astonishment, cheered and all started High Fiving me. They were certainly impressed I spoke their language with such enthusiasm. That certainly was a triumphant moment and little things like that surely enrich my life.
