More insight

I've worked it out: Brazilians are cockneys.

  • They pronounce words the same way. Ask a black cab driver to say Costa del Sol and it'll be just the way a Brazilian would pronounce it, i.e. "de'w so'w".
  • The Portuguese for "hi" is "oi" which must be short for "Oi oi my son!"
  • Brazilians from the Northeast love forro, which is basically just knees-up Mavver Brahn with a funny beat.
