The Brazilian wild lemon I was telling you about grew wild in Vietnam, too. I bought them in the market in Hanoi. I think the Portuguese and the Italians took the citrus to Brazil during Colombus days.
I do a lot of reading but I don't talk much about it, because people will think that I'm trying to be the bright guy.
I really like history.
