  2. Assuming Salvador Bahia is Salvador, Brazil, you will need to speak some Portuguese if you ever move there. The vast majority speak no English. Its not like Mexico where many of the locals speak both Spanish and English.

    On the other hand, if you hang out with the educated crowd only, or have a Brazilian girlfriend for all your translating, no problem. Also, its not any harder to learn Portuguese than it is Spanish (I speak Spanish and have just begun studying Port). Many of the words spelled the same, pronounced different though.

    you guys wanting to live the s american life should first spend some time in miami before taking the plunge.

    its a little square of latino land in the states. no one talks english and the girls are really dudes.

    cocaine & cigars on every street corner.

  4. I've travelled S America extensively. Miami is much worse than 90% of the places I've visited. I don't go to the major cities, however, other than Quito and Buenos Aires which are great.

    most od the people I have met are super friendly and poor. Yes, they do not speak English. We should all speak at least one other language anyway for cultural reasons if nothing else.

    Does it make a huge difference what time of year you got to Brazil? Would August be ok, or is it more quite there b/c its winter?
