You plan a summer vacation in beautiful Brazil and can’t wait to relax at the beach all day. You meet this cool guy named Rodrigo at the beach; he doesn’t speak any English so you introduce yourself using your limited Portuguese skills. He ends up inviting you to a party that night at his place, which is nearby. He tells you to make a left at the corner and head a few blocks down until you see the house that’s amarela — that’s his place. You don’t know your colors in Portuguese but don’t want to seem ignorant, so you just smile and nod as Rodrigo walks away. Long story short: you never get to that party at cool Rodrigo’s because you don’t know which house is his.
