expatbrazil.co.uk's insight:

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/

The Best Organic Food Spots in Rio

The Best Organic Food Spots in Rio | Life in Brazil | Scoop.it

By Mary Bolling Blackiston, Contributing Reporter

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Finding organic food in Rio is not always easy, especially compared..."

expatbrazil.co.uk's insight:

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.

I think "everyone" including those mentioning other countries should also learn a bit about each country they visit, from friends from and look toward any connection with it. Country exploration and history, whether good or bad, is very interesting and provides insight to origins and customs.
