In Brasilia
When Brasilia was designed, the urban architect Lucio Coista’s vision was to create self-sufficient living quadras, including schools, residence and commercial areas, leisure and culture centers and churches. And the plan was to have neighborhood clubs in each of these quadras, serving as a meeting place and leisure area. Well, that was the plan – but it never was put into action. The only neighborhood club that was put into reality was Clube Social de Unidade Vizinhança nº 1, serving the community in the super quadras 107, 108, 307 and 308 in Asa Sul. Clube Vizinhança, founded in 1961, is a huge neighborhood club that not only offers sport and recreational areas, but also has grill areas, kids play areas, a ballroom, restaurants, a beauty salon, a fully equipped gym and of course several swimming pools. And they have a huge sauna as well. Sport activities include basketball, capoeira, football, yoga, swimming, tennis, volleyball and martial arts classes like Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Karate, Muay Thai and Krav Maga. If one is looking to book a room for a party or a BBQ area, the club offers several options to choose from. Best of all is the price. While other social clubs in Brasilia can cost you thousands of reais, Clube Vizinhança charges you a one-off joining fee of R$500 and then a monthly fee of R$165 per family or R$125 per individual. And that is a pretty good deal for all the things you get.

If you are looking for a good Italian option and you are not very price sensitive, try Villa Tevere out. I personally like the Raviolis, Gnocchis and the Tiramissu. The decor of the restaurant is quite exquisite too. For more details, visit the restaurant´s website. Expect to pay between 200 - 300 reais for two people, including a wine. http://www.villatevere.com.br/

I recommend Edson as a Handyman in the region of Asa Sul. He can quickly fix and install virtually anything and also deals with electricity related issues. Best of all is that his services are excelent and he charges a very fair price. Only issue is that he does not speak English, so you may need somebody or google to help translating some stuff to him. Edson´s contact (whatsapp and mobile number): 61 99412 8208

In Financial Services
In November 2020, the Central Bank of Brazil launched Pix, the Brazilian instant payment solution. Pix is the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to transfer money locally to other people and businesses. The best: you do not even need to memorize or write someone´s branch and account number. You can just type the receiver´s email, telephone or CPF (TaxId) and the system recognizes the beneficiary of the transfer. Simple, right? In practice, you are able to use Pix with your bank´s or payment service provider´s app. Generally, it is quite intuitive. There will be an icon or option for Pix. Then, just choose the alias type (CPF, Tel Number or email) and type the details and amount. That simple! After the transfer is made, both the payer and payee receives a receipt. Slowly, small business and adhering to Pix. Some business are already accepting payments with a QR code. In this case, you just need to scan the QR code with your app and your mobile phone will show you the details of the payment / transfer. For more details about Pix, visit the Central Bank of Brazil´s website (avaliable in English): https://www.bcb.gov.br/en/financialstability/pix_en
