I thought Nicolas was adorable from the moment I met him. He’s from South America and he speaks broken English, with lots of funny stories. He was pretty much an open book!
“I’m half Brazilian, half Colombian,” he told us.
“Which half do you think you take after most?” I asked.
“Brazilian,” he said. “Definitely Brazilian. I love soccer. I love to cook. I love Brazilian food.”
He told us that his girlfriend is Brazilian, and that he used his ability to cook to impress her when they first met.
“My mom, she wanted a girl,” he explained. “But she didn’t have no girls… So she taught me how to cook!”
“That must come in handy!”
“Yes it does,” he said. “Bonus points!”
