While many people flock to see simulated alien invasions at the movies, people in Brazil have experienced the real deal— firsthand. Two years ago, extraterrestrials descended on Marghinia— a rural town, 390 miles south of Rio de Janeiro.
Brazilian ufologos — as UFO believers in Brazil are known — say the first ET was spotted near a forest. Five hours later, a second ET was spotted swimming in a lake.
Paloma Vaiho and her sister, Doria Vaiho, have recently set up a “Snack Shop” at the site where the alien visitors were first seen. “We sell mostly picnic items. Tuna and trout sandwiches always sell out,” explained Paloma. She added, “Turistas are coming out of the wood work. We are so popular now! Soon the whole world will be buying our tuna and trout sandwiches.”
Tuna and Trout Sandwiches
12 oz. tuna, in olive oil, drained
3 oz. smoked trout, flesh removed from bone
1 small shallot, finely grated or minced (optional)
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
In a large bowl, mix tuna, trout, shallot and mayonnaise. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Lightly toast bread and assemble sandwiches. Garnish with tomato slices and lettuce.
