There's a word in Brazilian Portuguese that doesn't have a direct translation to English.  If you look it up, it means "miss".  But that doesn't even begin to cover it.  It's the feeling you have when a place gets under your skin and becomes a part of you.  It's the myriad of feelings you have all at once when you think of it - joy, sadness, happiness, melancholy, longing.

It's the feeling I have as we leave Recife.

It's been a great two years.  We've made some great friends, we've had some wonderful experiences, we've been to some amazing places, and we've grown tremendously.

Temos saudades para Recife!
