"Brasilia4Dummies is an excellent resource for anyone visiting or living here. What especially makes this better than other simple “travel” websites is not only these interesting info and links, but the practical detail provided by ex-pats who actually live here and the content that is written specifically for non-natives relocating to Brazil. After moving here from NYC and a career in the arts, I’m thrilled to discover this community and am really looking forward to their guidance for further exploring the beautiful arts, and incredible music available here. I wish my embassy were half as helpful!"
