Welcome from the Central Coast of California! Ask any question, make any observation….
You can put your location in your Profile—(please!—because people will forget!) and which will save questions in the future as to where you live when you later mention local stores, weather, tobacco prices, availability, regulations, location of photos, etc., etc..
Under your avatar, (top right, left most of three symbols) you choose "Account Details", which brings up "My Account". "My Location" is halfway down. Whatever you're comfortable with- town, city, county, state.
Welcome indeed, from Brooklyn. My favorite poet (in English translations by Elizabeth Bishop, an American who lived in Brazil for decades) is Carlos Drummond de Andrade. I believe he too was originally from Minas Gerais.
