today a guy came by asking if this is house number "14" "Puro"? (pure?)
he then offered, jovial, enthusiastically, and with great confidence, to put up our house number on the house (I think it's sort of written barely legible on the wall downstairs). He said, "it's so important to have clearly marked numbers on the house. I will make it really nice, beautiful, so that everyone can see. Only 10 reais. (approx $6 dollars). You sure? sure? what about upstairs? they don't have a number! put a number there! 10 reais. You don't have to pay it today, I'll come back." Maria continued to negate the offer. And then he moved on.
