To answer ... he's kinda ok on the whole. He speaks english fluently so that helps. I didn't know a word of Portuguese when I first went over so I reckon that helps. He misses many things but as you'll know - you've got to roll with it and learn to adapt.
Nothing to be sorry about - if I could not find it knowing it is somewhere here, then you certainly cannot be held responsible for not finding it. I am from Russia, and for the last 10 years live in the USA.
