“The North American couple Pamela and Tom Webster, resident in Fairbanks, in Alaska, since Saturday (14), are spending some days in Tatui and are being received by the Holtz family. In 1971, Pamela was exchange student of American Field Service (AFS) and studied in Tatui, being hosted by the families Holtz and Bertin. In this trip to Brazil, the couple went to see the natural beauties of the Pantanal.”

The spelling of Fairbanks is interesting. Brazilians add “ee” in pronouncing certain English words, so “big” becomes “bigee” and apparently Fairbanks becomes “Fairbankees.” Or maybe it’s a tupo.
