RE: Belo Horizonte, Brazil Data Sheet
I'm actually pipelining someone in BH, so this is very helpful. At first I was reluctant because it isn't a beach city, but at the same time, I want to get a feel for how people in the interior of the country live their lives.

Talking of tiers what tier is Fortaleza?
It's the 5th biggest ?
I ask because although apparently it has 2 million people it seemed dead during the daytime in the week..maybe cause I didn't explore the interior areas,only around the Beira Mar.
Recife on the other hand seemed much busier with insane traffic at rush hour.

As a Brazilian from Sampa or Rio would you get bored and stir crazy if you had to live there for long ?

Why don't you try asking this on a Fortaleza thread?

RE: Belo Horizonte, Brazil Data Sheet
Is there good BJJ in BH?
is it possible to live on less than 2000R$/month?

Will green eyes do as well or just blue? lol

I want to go to Brazil in 2013, but can't make my mind up which city.

bface,
how's your portuguese?
on 2k reais/month, you'd have to live as a local and in a place like BH, at least half of that would go towards your rent, leaving you with 1k reais/month. While doable, it wouldn't be fun IMO. Brazil ain't the cheap paradise it used to be be in the early to mid 2000's....From my multiple trips to Brasil, a minimum budget to have a good time would be at least 4k$/month and that would be as a minimum.

In the NorthEast I had a good time on a $3000 dollars per month budget. But in major cities like Sao Paulo, Rio, BH ...$3500 to $4000 sounds about right assuming you want to have fun.

Just started learning, I thought I will try to do a few trips there over the next few years to get fluent.

Is there a middle ground? I don't need much, just a bed and internet access to work.

What are you spending 4k on? Hotel? Partying?

Well, sounds like a good reason to go back to work!
