    I'm wondering if anyone here has ever lived in or spent any significant amount of time in Sao Paulo.

    Long story, but we may have to move there for several months. I've never been and I've heard some really iffy things about Brazil (more so about the rurals areas). Is Sao Paulo safe? Can you get by without speaking Portuguese? We have a toddler and I would be spending a lot of time on my own most of each week while my husband travels to Northern Brazil in the Amazon :)scream:).

    Any comments would be appreciated!

    Ah, sorry! Was it you getting the brazilian style bikini last summer? Maybe that's where I got it from.
