Come visit, Kate! <3
  1. Beautiful scenery
  2. Juice bars on every corner (pineapple with mint!)
  3. The Portuguese language
  4. Friendly locals who tell you that you just asked for dick instead of bread (accent marks are there for a reason, folks)
  5. Summer temperatures year-round
  6. Friends and family actually want to visit (good thing we decided not to move to Northfield, MN)
  7. Realizing time is not money
