Brazilians are very clean about everything.
Always mopping floors, and cleaning everything thoroughly.
I took my beloved and well worn crocks out of my suit case, and left them on the floor beside it.
Later I returned and found Tia Sueli scrubbing them with an old toothbrush!
"What are you doing?" I asked
"I was mopping the floor, don't worry."
They look new!
A bit embarassed - but what can I say?
