Mindset Institute's website makes it easy for tourists during the World Cup
With thousands of tourists coming for the World Cup, Mindset Institute has made a special web page to help those who don't speak Brazilian Portuguese.
The hot site contains a series a questions related to the World Cup and general information, such as asking prices or how long it takes to get to a destination. For each situation in English or Spanish there are alternatives in Portuguese followed by an audio file to teach pronunciation.
The goal of the language school is to get tourists more accustomed to the local language, encouraging them to learn basic notions in the brazilian tongue. The link is: www.institutomindset.com.br/copa2014/
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Finding organic food in Rio is not always easy, especially compared..."
If you're visiting or planning a move to Rio de Janeiro knowing the best places to get what you want can make life so much easier. This is a great guide from the Rio Times on the best places to buy or eat organic food.
We're very lucky in Saquarema, we're surrounded, like many small Brazilian towns, with a plentiful supply of local producers of which we are one. We personally grow oranges, tangerines, limes, bananas, coconuts, avocados, tomatoes, cashew, melons, mangoes, pineapples, lots of different Brazilian fruits and many vegetables. On saying that I will be taking a look at some of these option when I'm next in Rio.
I eat much better whilst in Saquarema than the UK because there simply isn't any ready meals and convenience products that are jammed packed with processed rubbish so I'm never tempted to be lazy and eat crappy food. Of course it's coming and small product lines are appearing, steak/chicken in various sauces and other rubbish but I shall not be tempted (I hope) and shall continue cooking good home made organic food.
Camping has quickly become a viable alternative as Brazil's hotels, pousadas, and hostels increase prices for the World Cup time frame. When using hostel booker, I tried several dates while the games will be held in Rio de Janeiro.
