Felix: tour ?/ I dont remember that

Trendsetter: Hey Vance, I heard you are from Brasil. How is the weather there

Vance: Yeah, it's in one of our chat logs. You had some sites showing, for example, the pier that burned where you used to play.

Felix: oh.. i remember now

Felix: I am from Brazil Marcos

Felix: I was there this week Vance.. The water was very clear..

Vance: I'll see if I can find some of the urls, and Marco can see where Felix lives ...

Felix: I remember you because I saw lots of people diving.


Trendsetter: Ohh. I`m from spain and I have to say that I miss it a lot, maybee because of the cold german weather.

Vance: You thought about me. You can't remember me unless we are in a time warp.

Vance: From where in Spain?



Trendsetter: My father is from a small village near Leon in the north.


Felix: these are the URl's

Felix: what is a time warp?

Vance: Great. You should link them on your web site.

Felix: i will post the pics there... I think it's better.

Vance: A time warp is like, I'm coming to visit you in brazil, but because of the time warp, I've actually already been there.

Vance: So you remember me from the time I was there (time warp).

Felix: uh???

Vance: Sorry, "warp" means to be bent out of shape, like a cassette left in your car in the sun.

Vance: For example, Trendsetter thinks he's insane, but Maggi thinks he's warped.

Vance: Someone can have a "warped" sense of humor.

Vance: It means strange, or not in the correct shape.

Felix: oh ok

Maggi: Don't you watch Star Trek...

Felix: nope

Vance: I'm looking at Praia de Cumuruxatiba now

Trendsetter: Year, European Community, that it is.

Felix: Is not THAT true what people say on Tv Trendsetter..

Felix: We have poor people, but not that much...

Felix: Politicians and other ppl try to show this image about Brazil just to get money from International organizations and banks.

Trendsetter: What are people say on TV about THAT ???

Maggi: So it's comfortable to live in Brazil..

Felix: That we are a poor Brazil.. We only have misery here.. Things like that

Maggi: What kinda job are you doin'?
