Olá, bom dia!

Once in a while, something breaks the daily monotony... Like walking a mile to the Brazilian Consulate to pick up a visa for a friend.

The man in front of me in line was dressed in the robes of a religious order. Some type of Orthodox Christian. At first, I thought he was a priest, but he was not wearing a large cross on his chest, as is typical of the Orthodox priests. Perhaps he was a monk or a deacon. He had a small scarlet Orthodox three bar cross embroidered on his hat. He spoke unaccented American English. I wonder what brings him to Brazil.

There's a small chance of me heading down to São Paulo... Not looking forward to flying 10 hours to land in the same time zone...
