Three Wishes

"Would you like a ribbon?" the pretty Brazilian girl asked me. "What color? Red means power."
"What does blue mean?"
"Water I think."
"Okay I'll take those two."
"You put it around your wrist and then you make three wishes and then the ribbon falls off and then your wishes come true. Would you like me to tie it for you?"
"Sure. What do the words mean?"
"Lembranca do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia... it's the name of this saint in Bahia, is like, saying come to Bahia."

3 wishes. I could only think of one.
