2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,600 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 43 trips to carry that many people.

Gay Partnership in Brazil?

With the recent news stating same-sex couples can get married in Brazil I wanted to share some light about how this affects those applying for Visas.

The Visa I applied for is Stable Union. This is Brazil’s version of ‘Marriage’ or ‘Civil-partnership.’ This, in our state, has been available to Same-sex couples for around a year now.

With it now being available through-out the country, it gives same-sex couples the same rights to apply for a visa as hetro-sexual couples. I’ve seen many different success stories already!

The biggest thing. Remember, everyone’s story is different. There is no consistency when applying for this Visa, and depending where you are applying, is dependant on what your told!

Congratulations to those states that didn’t have this Same-Sex partnership in place already! ūüôā

Permanent Residency

So you want to stay in Brazil!?

Take a look at the new page I’ve just added to see how I managed to become one step closer to being a permanent resident!

I hope this helps, and I hope you succeed if you are going through a similar process!

Hello world!

Hey All!

My name is¬†Cristov√£o, I’m 22, and have been in Brazil since 2010. So far I have visited Campo Grande, Rio & Sao Paulo, with more¬†travelling¬†to come!

I am currently living in Campo Grande РMS. The city itself is the biggest in MS State, relatively boring, but very highly populated.

I moved here in June 2010 – The whole idea of living in Brazil was so crazy, yet very exciting! When I arrived I spoke NO Portuguese, and I am sad to say it is still very poor – But improving – Slowly!

After my own experience of trying to find other English speakers or advice about living in Brazil from a real person, I decided to make a Blog to share with you my experiences – past, present and future. So here it is!

I really hope the information posted on this site is useful to you, and maybe you’ll meet some new friends along the way. Please feel free to share your stories and experiences to! I would love to hear them!
