Oi/Hi!

I am thinking about spending some time in Sao Paulo 1) get to know more of Brazil, 2) train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and 3) possibly to find work.

I heard that there is such thing as finding a guest family that I could stay with. If not, does anyone know what I cand to find inexpensive rent?

By the way, I can speak several languages such as Spanish and decent Brazilian Portuguese. Degree in International Business.

Muito obridago,

Lou

If you have a degree in International Business, and you can speak Spanish, Portuguese and a few other languages, then why are you selling yourself short? Why are you looking for a cheap place? With all of those credentials you should be able to land the best jobs and afford a great apartment.

Where do you train know? What belt are you? Who do you train with? Who do you plan on training with when you do get to Brazil?

Lisa and Miguel,

I really like Brazil. I was born in Panama so I'm used to "cheaper" places. I really want to be in Sao Paulo.

Miguel, I have trained with many people, on and off. Did a bit with Marcos Santos, Dan Miraggliota, wrestlers, etc. I am a blue belt and will train with anyone in Brazil.

But anyways, can you guys help me please?

Thanks,
Lou

Hey Lou,

Sorry I ragged on you. I'm the one that posted as Lisa. Not sure what came over me yesterday, but it seems that people are so desperate to get to Brazil that they'd be willing to take anything. I just hope you really consider your standard of living. One way to fall out of love with a place really quick is when you find yourself living the day-to-day grind.

Now to help you, I have also looked for similar info all over the web.

There is a web site that I came across in English that is by Americans who actually live in Sao Paulo.

www.gringoes.com

There is also another website:

www.brazilamerica.com

These people are travel agents but as far as I can tell they are the best. They specailize in helping people set up personalized tours to Brazil. If I'm not mistaken, they also offer relocation services.


There ia another site:

www.virtualtourist.com

This site is great because it list people who have been to Brazil, people who will be visiting, and people who are from Brazil and live there as well.

There are also two other sites that might be handy:

www.brazilianist.com

www.brazilmax.com

Hope this helps.
