    Hi Greg & Cath,

    Great site you have here, I’m glad to see plenty of pictures too. I dont live in Brazil but I did…and I will again (just doing some planning first so that I can stick it out this time around). I’m going to add your blog to my links list tomorrow (its pretty late here in California), and I’ll be sure to take a closer look at it too.

    Dear Greg and Cath,

    Its 4:11 am here in the big apple and I just finished reading your posts.. I think I read em all.. 🙂

    Nothing can sum this up any better than.. “Thank you.. Thank you.. O.. Thank you so very much”.

    I’m planning to move to Sampa.. in a few weeks. I do not know anything about the city, or should I say.. I did not know anything about SP until your blog. I am adding your blog to my list.. FOREVER. 🙂

    I do not know if there are any expat meet up groups in SP, if you know of one, I’ll look forward to reading about it in your blogs..

    Lastly.. thank you.. again.

    Dear Greg and Cath

    I agree with the post above. I have been living in SP for one month now. It is cool to see what other foreigners have thought of some of the things that I have seen.

    Also if you know of any expat groups in SP, that would be cool. I live with Brazilians and though it is good for learning Portuguese, it would be nice to speak proper English once and a while!

    Nice blog! My wife is Brazilian and we lived in Brazil for a couple of years before relocating to the U.S. I was wondering how the tech job market is there, since I’ve recently begun training in that field and would REALLY like to eventually move back to Brazil. Any info?

    I’m doing research for a show on the Travel Channel called “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.” Our show is a series of one-hour episodes that explore culture through food. We highlight foods that are unique to the area we are visiting and that are “bizarre” to those of us who are not natives. We are also very interested in traditional foods and methods of preparation.

    We are shooting an episode of our show in Brazil in March. I’m trying to gather as much initial research on the country, the different regions, and the cuisine and any unusual foods they have to offer. I’d love your opinion on the best region to shoot in Brazil. We’d love to include the Amazon, but most of all we want to find the most unusual foods in one part of the country. I’m also looking for any “bizarre” food stories that you know of… unusual restaurants, unusual food preparation, people who do interesting things with food, etc. Any thoughts? I look forward to hearing from you!!

    Hi Guys
    Thanks so much for the blog on SP. My wife and i ( plus 3 sons) are moving to SP this year for 2 years and in just one red i have gained alot of valuable information.

    Melissa and I are in SP the week of the 16th of Feb to look at schools and housing and would love to get an Aussie/Kiwi view on SP. Would you be free to catch up one night?

    Cheers Ross Ashby

    HI there, I just came across this blog from the gringoes website. I’m an Aussie that has just moved to Brazil with her Brazilian husband and are looking to know other gringoes. it would be great to know another Aussie.
    How long have you been living here?

  10. Pele says:

    Are you still in Sao Paolo? My husband (who is from Brazil) and I may be going to live in Sao Paolo, and I am so curious about life there. For example, what are the “best” middle class neighborhoods? What can an American like me do for a living? I know Spanish and a little Portuguese. My background is in Public Health. What is transportation like? Are the railways and subways “safe”? You see, I have a thousand questions. Your posts are great, I have enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Pele says:

    ok, i alredy figured out you are back in London, sorry about that!

  12. Tim Sullivan says:

    I would like to correct the information provided about Feijoada.
    Feijoada is NOT a cut of every “animal type”. Feijoada is a stew of beans with beef and pork.
