If you are a happy individual living in a fancy country with any smart interior heating system, you can stop reading. More: you should know that here in a cold floor kitchen sits a woman green with envy of yours.
One of the (not so few) things I hate about living in Brazil is the freezing houses. Yeah, we do not have hot weather 365 days in São Paulo, but I’ll complain about the heat later, I swear. Despite we can get from 30 Celsius degrees to 8 in the same day, we do not have any heating system in our houses. People sit in home with double pants, three socks and a bunch of coats (an English friend of mine said he feels embarrassed of working with jacket but has no choice since one can freeze to death in here)
We bought a Taiwan electrical heater that takes our electrical bills to heaven – yeah, physicists are right, hot air lifts – and here it lifts my bills. So, the great stiod today was bringing my papers to the kitchen and preparing some food while I am working (and blogging). If you can feel some smell of garlic flavored sirloin it’s my fault.
Despite it might be dangerous for the papers getting some olive oil texture, It gives me comfort of a warm room for the time being. And I will soon open the cookbook looking for some tart recipe or the likes so I can use the oven as well. Perhaps I should get some cooking as sideline all over the winter time. I guess LP gas is cheaper than electricity anyways.
