does anybody know how to ask "do you know what day of the week the garbage truck comes by?" in portuguese? i tried asking the old man sitting on the stoop across the street and just got a blank stare. i then realized that i should've asked it in portuguese. duh!

(it is funny how people who are asked a question in a foreign language respond like catatonic deer staring down an 18-wheeler. it reminded me of when i was in france and was routinely asked things that i had no idea how to answer.)

so what did you do when you were in france, this sounds like it is begging for a story :)
