This past Sunday, July 24th 2016, Loretta Murphy Translations was thrilled to participate in Canada’s largest Brazilian Cultural Event: the 13th Annual BrazilFest Toronto at Earlscourt Park. The weather was quente and úmido (hot and humid), the food was saboroso (tasty) and the crowds cheio (plenty).
