• Portuguese is a dificult language, it’s the most dificult latin language in Europe (if i may believe the info) beside Romenean language.i think the grammar and sintax is one of the hardest to learn. Portuguese isn’t like what you see is what you hear. exp: electrico is pronounced eletrico (without the c). I’m not sure but i think Brasileiros write…[Read more]

  • Yes, he was laying low however. I expect he chose here because it is still a fishing village and pretty quiet overall. Weekends during the summer and Carnival are about the only times the crowds hit and the Disco’s get rocking! -D

  • Another good driving experience is when your driving at night through the wilderness and you see 2 pairs of lights side by side on the road ahead, the only problem is its a single carriageway and the 2nd pair are infront of you, you flash your lights to signal danger and they start flashing back as if to say I am coming through, as they are…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=Larry LaRose]The bad news: I was side swiped by a very aggressive driver outside Mangagua. He refused to stop, so I chased him and finally confronted him and told him to either give me 500.00 R or I’ll call the cops and make a report (of course, he had no insurance) so I followed him to a ATM. He forked over the cash. That was about my only…[Read more]

  • It might have been mentioned before but the Manaira cinema is no ordinary cinema. Some say they are the finest screen and cinema conditions in the whole of South America. They are certainly better than any of the cinemas I visited in Sao Paulo.tamashin2008-05-17 09:14:58

  • Hi sCary. I am sure that everyone will thank you for posting as it gives others an opportunity to correct your post. Google will reveal a Joao Pessoa not built up to the beaches. The only part that is built into the sea is a very fine hotel called “Tambau Tropical” there is the English Bridge but that hardly counts. We have a law here which…[Read more]

  • What do I know, well the prefeitura are refurbishing the Farol at the most eastern point of the Americas or Joao Pessoa. A new lawn has been laid around the tower and there are several stalls selling gifts and refreshments. The toilets are in the very first tourist stall and cost 25c in case you didnt know. If you want to walk down to the beach…[Read more]

    Yikes, this gets better, they must have a Cray computer to calculate the bills‚Ķ.I just looked down the page a little and I was wrong, there are indeed service charges and of course taxes, however unlike other countries where the service charges are a fixed monthly cost, here in Riothese costs are compounded with your consumption under Res…[Read more]

    I was thinking ‘dryer’ but neglected to say it. We don’t have piped gas so I always thought an all-electric dyer would be prohibitive, at least compared to the clothes line method. I have never got around to doing any figuring as the dryers in the stores here seem odd at best and a real US dryer would probably shrink all the clothes to about 1/2…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=Cary]As I’ve always warned on this site, “Buyer beware!” I’d advise that any gringos looking to resettle in Brasil also check out the small island community of Ilhabela, or the charming Portuguese town of Paratyand its many small unpopulated islands, or many other wonderful Brasilian seafront locations before making any decisions.

  • [QUOTE=abovethelaws]you wouldnt also know how much it costs for a brazilian to obtain a license over there? inc driving lessons exam fee’s etc?[/QUOTE]More than you might expect … like maybe R$1200 or more … and you have to take the lessons, or pay for them at least. That is why I commented once that I think that most Brazilians don’t have them.
