  • The first times I went to Brazil, I did not bring anything else than my Norwegian drivers license. At some point I had a BIG discussion with my girlfriend, now wife, about that. So I contacted the Brazilian embassy in Oslo, Norway. They said that the Norwegian license is valid in Brazil. Period. BUT – as others have pointed out – one thing is what…[Read more]

  • An international driving license can be useful though *if* you’re here on a tourist visa and want to drive a Brazilian’s car. It saves the translation costs of your own license and some additional bureaucracy, at least according to São Paulo Detran. I know people who think it’s OK to drive with the license from their country of origin though, in…[Read more]

  • Just want to thank Denise for all the time and effort she contributed to my SP visit. Denise was willing to go that extra mile and beyond to be helpful.

  • I don’t yet have an RNE. I would assume that the process is the same if you do have one, and the RNE acts as your proof of legal status.

  • I think probably the best food in SP (at a price) is to be found at the Vecchio Torino. This is probably because unlike most other fancy places, some of which are quite good, the owner is in the kitchen – just like in Italy! However I should warn the unwary that the wine list is either pricey or outrageous.

  • Any tips on which bank is best, in terms of quality of service and good interest rates for a current account?I had understood that there are quite hefty monthly charges on owning an account here. Is that right, or are there some banks that offer no-strings-attached?

They are trying to get visas for British, South Africans, Yanks and Columbians at the moment!It is a British/ Dutch company hard work and lots of travelling but they are good to you!

  • The football matches are always on at O’Malley’s pub, which is on the corner of Rua da Consola√ßão and Alameda Itu.Everything there is good from the draft to the food. There are about five different areas to hang out in, one of them with good live rock bands. I think the cover charge is 15 reais.
