In February 2020, right before COVID lockdowns began, Chase Farmer celebrated Carnival in Rio de Janeiro where he met Nicole Guimarães. Fast forward a year, and Nicole and Chase are finally in the same place and navigating the ins-and-outs of their cross-cultural relationship in person. In between tuning in to UUCC’s virtual services every Sunday morning, Nicole and Chase are trying out Baltimore restaurants and learning each other’s languages. They chat with Sara about differences and similarities they’ve observed between American and Brazilian culture and what they’ve learned from each other during their time together.
Bonus: Tune in to hear Nicole’s recommendations for authentic Brazilian food in the area!
