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.
Saracen1 replied on October 20, 2014 with:
You're comparing a country to a continent! Brazil is a single country while Africa has over 56 different countries. This is not a good comparison.
Saracen1 replied on October 20, 2014 with:
I loved your article except when you grouped all American blacks in the same realm, assuming that they all know nothing about their african history. This is not true and I for one, pride myself on knowing my history and the history of blacks in the diaspora. I'm interested in the history of blacks in brazil, its differences and it's similarities.

hats posted Thinking of moving to Blumenau, Brazil on the Brazil forum:
Am contemplating moving as an expat to Blumenau, Brazil. Wanted some information from expats who are already living there: 1) Are there good international schools there. I have a 12 year old and a 10 year old. 2) We donot know German, Portuguese or Spanish. Is this going to be a problem? 3) How has been your experience living there as an expat? Thanks in advance for your help! -Hats

hosscolla initially posted:
I've planned to retire in Salvador and would like to ship my Toyota Tundra there from USA. Will they allow it there? And what about cost?
exnyer replied most recently with:
The simple answer is yes, you can ship your Tundra but it will cost you. Now for the why of it all. Brasil has a protectionist economy. As a "rich" foreigner you must be forced to "buy Brasilian". The equivalent vehicle here is called the Hilux. If you go online to the Brasilian embassy site you will find a list of unpermitted imports including anything gasoline powered. Ship you furniture (the furniture here are VERY uncomfortable), electric tools and appliances (buy transformers when you get here). Check your electric appliances to see if they will work with the voltage here 240V. Our clothes washer only needed a transformer, our dryer is DOA.

It never ceases to amaze me! I don't even begin to fathom why anyone (unless they're wealthy) would even think about shipping a pick-up truck (not motorcycle) from the US to BR, to begin with.

Amelaroz initially posted:
I am looking for some info regarding the fastest way to go about obtaining a visa for my husband. I am an American citizen who has been living overseas for the past 20years. I have not been able to get much info from the US embassy so was hoping to maybe get some advice from someone here. Has anyone had any experience with filing a spouse visa such as K3 or I-130? What about the DCF? Thank you

Nothing obsessive about it. I need some expensive surgery that I'd have to pay cash for here in Brasil. Thanks to Obama care I cen get it covered there and I'll need my partner to help recover. But your dead right about the kaleidoscope of hurdels to maneuver. It's amoral and invasive.

Danerlenborn replied to the thread Brittish Chef in Brazil on the Brazil forum:
Thomma initially posted:
I am planning on moving to Florianopolis in May of next year with my partner who is Brazilian. I am a chef with 18 years experience and have worked in hotels and resorts such as the Dorchester and Gleneagles as well as rosset restaurants and high end gastro pubs. I am currently running Marco Pierre Whites restaurant on a cruse ship. Im wondering if there is any nice british resturants anywhere in Brazil. Florianopalis is not set in stone and we would consider other areas. I'm not nesisaraly looking for any place high end, just some place that serves good honest food. My knowledge of Brazilian food is at the moment limited and my portugeas is basic at best but I'd be happy to give anything a go.
