    wow..that is expensive..the more I read about Rio the more expensive it sounds..no wonder there is so much poverty

    rent is about the same price as my home town in the U.K.

    My view is that exchange rates give misleading salary comparisons because they do not reflect salary purchasing power differences. Exchange rates are volatile as they are based on short-term factors and are subject to substantial distortions from speculative movements and government interventions. Salary Purchasing Power Parity (SPPP) is the rate of salary purchasing power given the relative cost of the same basket of goods at the exchange rate versus one US Dollar. SPPP conversions allow cross-country comparisons of salary levels free of salary survey market and exchange rate distortions. You can get a more accurate SPPP comparison of your equivalent salary in another country using www.xpatulator.com

    It's the 4th most expensive city in the Americas... and that is overall cost of living which considers food and everything (which is really cheap in Brazil, or can be if you don't eat imported foods...)

    Steven - thanks for the tip!

    I agree that it was an expensive cost of living. But although its expensive it is worth it. I want to go there for vacation that was a great place.

    Rio became a global center for house investments, there are great opportunities for buying a cheep house and sell it with a good profit.

    I have never been to Brazil before and would like to go for 2016 Olympics taking place in that country. I am sure it will be a wonderful experience.
