replied to the thread Retirement Visa Question
on the Brazil forum on October 31, 2014:
I have heard that Brazilian authorities recently started rejecting retirement visa applications based on pre-existing medical conditions. I am brand new on this site. Could anyone help to clarify this for me?
Thanks Gringoguy. I'll follow up on that. Much appreciated.

replied to the thread African Americans in Brazil
on the Brazil forum:
Can anyone tell me how Brazil receives African Americans, who want to live in Brazil. I went to Salvador Brazil. I did not see any African Americans there.
How could you possibly know there are no A-Americans there, since the population of Salvador is at least 70% African?
Despite the fact that they may be viewed as a powerful "spiritual" force, the African Brazilians have absolutely no significant economic or political power.
Would anyone, on this forum, care to venture an honest guess, as to the reason why that is?
replied to the thread Transport from SP Congonhas to Guarulhos
on the Brazil forum on October 24, 2014:
I am looking for transport from Congonhas airport to Guarulhos airport on Nov 8th, I will need a van or truck it will be for 2 adults and 2 children w/ luggage. Any suggestions?
The shuttle bus between the airports is quite good and a cheap option. I have used it several times and had no problems.
Whether you choose to use this or a taxi, keep in mind that it is quite a distance between the airports and that traffic congestion in Sao Paulo is VERY bad! Allow lots of time...more than you would in most cities.
It's better to be an hour early than 1 minute late when catching a flight!
Best urban site ever! Its in an historical city by the sea, with lots of space to grow and be a hotel or B&B if you want make money of it.
The land is about 700 sqaure meters, lots of fruits and space to build more houses and cabins.
