Sorry, Brazil

I was supposed to make an appearance yesterday at a fan festival in Brazil, taking questions from my Brazilian readers via the wonders of the internet.

Well, I did appear, kinda sorta:



Unfortunately, the internet proved less wonderous than promised. We were using Skype, and while everything was working fine on my end, down in Brazil the sound kept cutting in and out. I did get to say hello and field two questions, but I am not sure how much of my answers was actually heard. Every few seconds the proceedings would be halted yet again while they switched to a new computer, tried a new setting, fiddled with some knobs, or whatever.

We finally had to give up, defeated by technology.

Sorry, Brazil. One of these days I will have to try and make it down there in person.

I am sure Vince Gerardis filled in admirably in my electronic abscence. None of this GAME OF THRONES stuff would be happening if not for him.

You should totally go to Brazil! The people are wonderful, and if I may be so bold as to infer that you are a foodie (some of your writing about food slays me) then you owe it to yourself to try Brazilian food - not only the churrascarias, but I'm sure you can find some fan willing to make a good old feijoada (the national dish). The country itself is gorgeous, and I'm sure the breath-taking scenery might inspire you to write something ;)
