If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

I would tell them to meet as many local people as possible and to learn some Portuguese to get situated quickly. Even though most people speak English, knowledge of the language would help them get settled and find good accommodation deals that otherwise would be hard to find.
