    Oi DRL,

    Tudo bem!

    I'm so glad to have found this blog! I've been lurking here for about 2 months, and have finally decided to speak up :).

    I think your blog is informative, and I especially like your reader surveys. I live in Canada and am not an expat in Brazil, but have been there a few times, and I know enough......at least enough to agree with many things in your survey results =).

    My girlfriend is Brazilian, and I thought how nice it would be if I could move and work in Brazil after we get married (but really, the sooner the better!) All my life I've always felt like I should've been born there, because their ways of life, culture, warmth, and basically everything Brazilian, seem so much like myself!

    If you don't mind saying, how did your husband do it exactly? Was it his choice to go there, or did his company transfer him? What's his line of work exactly? I bet he works for a very large company that has global branches, doesn't he? :)

    My background is IT, but I am not sure how easy it is to find a work there.
    I don't speak Portuguese, but I studied Spanish for 16 months, so I imagine I have quite a good headstart for learning Portuguese. since their grammar rules are quite similar.

    Tenha um bom dia! :)

    Awww thanks Gabby!

    Hi Frank - Thanks for your comment. Where in Canada are you? Mr. DRL was working for a small multinational company with most of its operations here in Brazil and was traveling here several times per year to work. It was our choice to come to live here.

    Hi DRL,

    Thanks for the reply :).

    I live in Toronto!! I like it here overall....but you know, the winter gets really nasty....also, no palm trees, no coconut trees, no landscape like around the Corcovado Mountain, and all the goodies of Rio, which can be summarised here:

    ;)

    It's nice that Mr. DRL's company allowed him the freedom to choose where he wanted to work...wow!
    What does the company do anyway? Is it a Canadian company?

    Boa noite!
