Mau-Mau / Bad-Bad

While walking downtown I talked to friends of Vinícius (the Brazilian from my "Industrial Computation" class I chatted up in the faculty's dining hall). Guilherme (his grand(grand?)father was Japanese), João (Bahia) and Lucas (São Paulo, his granddad is German, Lucas is one of the many blonde Brazilians), they were fun to talk to.
Suddenly the mass didn't walk any further, I was really hungry, but we didn't know what would happen or why nothing was happening. There was this Belgian guy who spoke like a Brazilian and later on turned out not to be an ERASMUS student but someone who after his ERASMUS year decided to stay in Portugal (he learnt his Portuguese from Brazilians).
Afterall there was no restaurant (I wondered how all these hundreds of ppl would fit into a restaurants anyways), we were standing in front of a club called "Mau-Mau". In German that's a children's card game, in Portuguese "mau" actually means "bad" or "mean". The club was beautiful, we got wine for free - but where was the food?!
Only really late we got soups, and even later some bread and salad. Damn, we were hungry!! More food! Where was it?!!
Eventually they served some kinds of noodle salads... only in small quantaties... the hungry mass jumped on the waiters and in a few minutes the noodles were gone. Later one more - gone in a few minutes.
I saw a guy who only had pure noodles on his plate. I asked whether he was vegetarian. He answered "No, I'm not, but there's nothing else." I said "Bist Du Deutsch?" (=Are you German), 100 points, it was a physics student from Würzburg. (These accents really give them away)
Another good organization :(. The "dinner" was frustrating.
I really got along well w/ Lucas, Brazilians are surely more open than Portuguese ppl. All of a sudden he was talking to a crazy Belgian guy who had kicked him in the ass. He wanted to catch his attention as a female friend of him wanted to get to know Lucas. He wasn't interested in the blonde girl. "I have a g/f in Brazil!". Lucas was quite unbelieving that that dude had kicked him in the ass *LOL*.
When the party started to get "hotter" Lucas was really having fun w/ the girls... so much as for the g/f :p.
