Santa Moved to Brazil
Gramado, Brazil. With global warming seriously devaluing his North Pole real estate, Santa got the bright idea to move somewhere a little more temperate. And while he was at it, why not move to Brazil? The women are beautiful, the language mellifluous, the steak fantastic, and if you look hard enough, you might even find some snow. Gramado is one such rare Brazilian locale that occasionally gets a dusting in the winter months. Of course right now at the height of the southern hemisphere’s summer, the temperature hovers at an attractive 80 degrees, which is probably better for elf morale anyway. When we visited back in October though, the weather was cool and decidedly christmas-y. Here are some photos of the grounds at Santa’s Brazilian estate.
Looks like someone ate too much fruitcake.
