Dennis has thing about Volkswagon bugs, or "fuscas" [foos-kuz]. Here in Bocaiúva, they are everywhere! We've asked several people why there are so many Volkswagons here. The answer? They are cheap and dependable. Actually, we think it's because their engines are not computerized, and are so simple that most anyone can work on them. They seem to have 9 lives, and are constantly being worked on to keep going...and going...and going. We wonder how some of them can keep going--then we learn that a lots of them are kept to sell the parts to keep other "bugs" going...going...and going.
