We have had a bad experience with American School of Brasilia, EAB. If you try, you'll loose your time and your children's expectations. There is another School in Brasilia, Escola das Nações. This one is much better. EAB seems to be friendly and make efforts to your child, but they won't.

This really is gtiteng a bit a lot more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has far more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of abneighborsbb will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune abSocialbb is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
