We finally made it into Denver around 5am and stopped at an IHOP for breakfast. This was one of the funniest things of the whole trip, so get ready. We sit down to order, and Jesu, Brazilian and therefore a native Portuguese speaker, tells the waitress he wants "strumble eggs". We all looked at each other, not knowing what to do, and finally Dahn says, "he means scrambled, he'll have the scrambled eggs".
Then, the waitress asks if Jesu wants white or wheat toast.
"Wheat? White?" Jesu asks, obviously confused.
"He'll have the white toast", Dahn answered matter-of-factly.
After the waitress left, Dahn and I jokingly laughed at/with Jesu, especially considering he was just telling us how good his English was getting.
We left IHOP and drove up into the mountains, the final leg to Breckenridge.
