Hi John,

I'm glad you brought that up. The Ok sign with the circle of the thumb and the index finger, that is. I didn't know that was true in Brazil, but in Italy that sign is taken with the same affront, so I'm assuming it carries the same meaning. Fortunately, I had read that in a novel about travel in Italy just before I went there, which saved me from that awful faux pas.

I do believe The Travelzine is getting more informative every day. Just look at the trouble you can keep me out of.

Thanks, Lou Matthews, Lakeway, TX
