In the Portuguese language, sardines live in the sea, but also on one’s face (as the word also means freckles in Portuguese). There are those who have a school of sardines on their cheekbones. In Brazil, one can eat anything, especially one another. Cannibalism is an ancient tradition, existing before and after the discovery of Brazil by the Portuguese. Devour yourself, said Socrates, the football player. We like sardines and apples, especially with potatoes (which is what we also call the calf of the human leg).
