Quixaba, Quimbanda, Quermesse and more…

Q can be quixotic. It is the only letter that is not used in the name of any of the United States. Q (standing for Quartermaster) supplies James Bond with gadgets.

The highest scoring word in the game Scrabble is “quartzy”.

‘Q’ is the least used of all the letters of the English Alphabet.

But have you heard of Quixaba, Quimbanda or Quermesse?

And even more ‘Q’ words. Not just words. Their descriptions and more.

So, presenting ExpatBrazil, a blog – guide to Brazil by Maggie, my fellow blogger in the A to Z challenge.

I’m sure you’ve never seen so many ‘Q’ words in one place. Have you?

  1. OMG, thanks so much, I feel like a star!

  2. You are a star, Maggie. A ro’Q’ star. 🙂

    Love the way the ‘Q’ words sound and the tons of research you did to bring them to us.

    As I said above, you rock.
