Bruno, thank you so much. Your email is awesome, because I can tell how much effort you put into writing it. Do you mind if I post it to my blog? I won’t include your name.

Keep reading!

  1. Whitney,
    There’s a Google Labs feature that auto translates foreign text for you when you receive emails. I leave it on all the time just in case someone emails me in another language (usually it winds up coming from someone in Israel in Hebrew).

    It’s a life saver and enables us to communicate without borders. Speaking of, I wonder if there is a resource dedicated to how to communicate without borders. Hmmm, Googling now (in multiple languages).

  2. It seems you have a lot of Brazilian readers :)

  3. This is an awesome post.

  4. This is absolutely adorable! ^__^
