Portuguese term or phrase: ramerrame
Fortunato é um mundo... Um mundo de indecisões e desejos antigos, estratificados. Em
corte transversal seria assim: desejos, desilusões, indecisões, desejos por aí fora e por
muito tempo... A interromper o seu RAMERRAME só, às vezes, dar-se ao luxo de ir até a
uma tasca qualquer de sua beira, beber uma QUINHENTA, raramente, um pouco
comprometido, não parecia bem.

daily routine
Explanation:
according to Dicionário Aurélio, ramerrame (or ramerrão) is "Uso continuado e costumeiro; rotina". That's why I would say 'daily routine' here

Second reference = Dicionário Português - Inglês de Porto Editora, which translates ramerrão as 'routine'

Hope it helps
