|“Welcome! I have created this site as a resource for English speaking expats and new residents in Rio das Ostras, RJ, Brazil because while there are numerous websites and resources for expats living in Macae, I have found nothing for those of us who have chosen to live a little bit outside the bubble.
I’ll be adding new information to the site often, including restaurant reviews, local attractions, classes, culture, everyday living and more. If you would like to contribute, or make a request for specific information, please send an email to me at tomebug (at) gmail (dot) com.
Be sure to like our Facebook page. There will be updates on upcoming one-time events and performances which won’t always be posted on this site. if you have information to share, feel free to join the conversation!”
Lots of photos.
Comments and tips about what is going on in Rio and interesting places to go.
|“I recently got a job at a bilingual international school in the capital of Brazil and will be moving with my husband in mid July. I have taught EFL in Brazil before (in Manaus to be exact) and I am really looking forward to returning to live. This is my journey.” (added Jan 11)
|Brazil, Country of the Present
I am a German expat living in São Paulo with my family (more or less since 2009), working in management for a German chemical multinational. Previously I have worked for the same company on a global level and for a consulting firm in Europe. I studied Economics and Business Administration in Germany and the USA. The only place I have lived for longer than in Brazil in my life is Germany, but I have also moved in and out of Africa (twice) and the USA (twice).
This is my second time to Brazil. (Dec 10)
