AMAZING!

things about Brazil that I appreciate better with perspective:

- free, quality college education (not even any supplementary tariffs like Germany's "social contribution")

- the free healthcare system is much better than its rep, me and my family have relied on it for generations

The dynamic I'm subjected to doesn't become less toxic just because I can take it.
