  • Hi, I am in a similar situation. I will be moving down to Floripa in Sept 2008 till March 2009 and will be working in Itacorubi. I’m looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom in that area or an area nearby (preferably near beach or water;)) like Lagoa Conceicao. Public transpo to Itacorubi is a must. Something in the R$500-R$700 range would work. Also any…[Read more]

  • Do you want to let your imagination get the best of you????????? You could do no worse than go for a wander round the old town centre, up and down the side streets, in and out the squares and then, what little jewel did I stumble on? When I left the Centro Cultural Sao Francisco instead of going straight across the square, I turned immediatly…[Read more]

  • Just for the record, we bought property here in JP from a Brazilian Real Estate Agency. If fact, I didn’t know any gringos until I met Captain Bill and the rest of the gringos this past year. “Happy Holidays”Cool

    Story Cary?I did go to a dentist in Curitiba and she scoffed at the level of Irish dentristry and suggested that I should seriously consider getting a new mouth, but at the time the Policia Federal were crackin down on the sale of body parts, though I do remember reading of a lad that sold a kidney and bought a house and fish cart, happy as Larry…[Read more]

  • I had the best experience with http://www.brol.com I think I paid around 750 roundtrip from seattle to Sao Paulo and the ticket can be for up to 1 year. you can fly as cheap as 500 dollars from some cities. Just a word of advice though, once you book your ticket with them don’t change it through them, use the airline!

  • [QUOTE=jacktwo]I teach English at a couple of schools. and previous posters are correct in saying the pay is low. I get a maximum of R$14 per hour teaching in the school. This doubles to R$25 per hour when sent to a company.. which isn’t a bad hourly rate if you could get back to back lessons for a few hours but this isn’t too common, and in…[Read more]

I’ll be in the car with a friend and someone will point out a place and say some random sh*t, i think it’s weird that they’re all somewhat low key (at least the ones i’ve seen) but everyone knows what they are. Not as awesome as driving by strip clubs with ridiculous fake UFOs, giant…[Read more]

And if so then why is that? [/QUOTE] 1)…[Read more]
