Hey, good story and great advice ! I thought i'd also share, I have had a very good experience with an English speaking doctor in Ipanema. (Rio as well!) She's a gynecologist and obstetrician. Me and my wife received great pre natal care from her and she is very pro natural birth which was what we wanted. Altogether she was very nice and great to find in Rio ! She has a website in English and portuguese. www.doctorluisa.com.br
Glad to hear you had a good experience in Rio as well!!

I'm a native English speaker here in Sao Paulo, and I write short stories when I'm not at my day job as a financial journalist.
I'm keen to start a meet-up group here in Sao Paulo that meets once every two weeks, or maybe once a month where native English speakers who are creative writers can meet and help workshop each others' work.
It'll also be a good chance to meet other creative writers in the city, and help exchange ideas as well as meet new people.
Anyone in Sao Paulo interested??
I am interested. Are you still in Sao Paulo?
Following up Rossiter's message in 2011, I am also looking for creative writers to form a writers group to meet regularly in São Paulo and organize open mic readings.
Sounds cool? Let us know here!

on the Brazil forum:
I would like to move to Floripa. I'm from Argentina and I live in Indonesia at the moment with my daughter and Italian partner. We would like to open an Italian restaurant there. We both have lots of experience in restaurants, he is a chef. We also know well Brazil. We need some information, is it possible to open a restaurant under our name? Being Argentinian helps? Is it hard to get visas? is it hard to get a working permit?
Hope someone can give me some info. Thanks before.
Could we talk on Skype? There is lot to say. My Skypename is marlington. So if you wish, please call me. Bye for now...
Thanks Margaret! You are very kind, your info is very useful. One more question, we are planning to open an Italian restaurant, my partner is very good Italian chef and at the moment I'm the general manager for a chain of Italian restaurants in Asia. But we don't have a lot of money to invest. How much can be the cost to rent an exciting restaurant or a comercial space in a nice and touristic area? Sorry for asking so many questions. ..

on the Brazil forum:
I am currently living in Sao lourenco, MG but I will be moving to Salvador in July to be nearer my children.
I would like some info on Jobs, accommodation and areas to live.
I am a CELTA qualified English teacher and I am also a carpenter with 12 years experience, if there much work avaliable for these skills? I need a 2 bed house or appartment not to far from the beaches and some nightlife. Can anyone suggest a suitable area?

Simon, I am building a home in Itapua south of the city on the beach in pedra do sal. Might need some help framing in my roof. After many years here this is the place to be. Clean beaches and nice barracas, malls, restaurants and fairly safe. Give me shot at email@example.com
I have been in Salvador just over a year. Barra is probably best for both beach & nightlife. Although beaches a cleaner further north.
CELTA will help you! ACBEU is probably the best English Language School. You could start there.
Email me if you like. The foreigners community here is limited but hopefully can point you in the right direction. My husband is from here and we have a 2 year old. Where do your kids live & how old?
