    It’s funny I signed up for gym (academia) here In recife and everyone dresses in cool workout gear in different outfits everyday. It’s been a great experience and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Brazil.

      I know what you mean, I just love the whole vibe and look of Brazilian academias. Olha pra quem malha!

  3. Max

    I wonder what the diminutive of rasteirinha would be? Rasteirinhazinha?

    1. Orlando Kelm

      As to what I would say, chances are that I would say rasteirinha pequenininha (putting the diminutive ending on ‘pequeno’ and not on ‘rasteirinha’).
