Well, I have been down in Brazil for a while. Sorry for not writing more. One thing I have been doing is visiting the stock exchange in Sao Paulo to get a feel for the economic vibe. Things are not as fast-paced as they are in New York, but it is still a good scene. Just take the metro to Sao Bento station and walk a block to the Bovespa Futures Exchange.
While there grab a Portuguese dessert at Casa Mathilde. Delicious.
I would also encourage everyone to begin thinking about reinvesting in PetroBras (PBR), the Brazilian oil giant. Yes, I know they are involved in a corruption scandal. But, that is one reason why I believe the time to buy is now, rather than later.
Here is why I think people should give PBR a chance.

In Brazil,to do any financial transactions beyond the most basic things, you will need a CPF. This card is the equivalent of the American social security number. However, they use it for much more in Brazil. For example, you need one to purchase a cell phone plan or car. Getting one is not as complicated as made out to be in internet forums. I think some folks enjoy causing confusion. To be honest, most of the paperwork I have completed in Brazil has been handled efficiently. The CPF process was no different. In all, I would say from start to finish it took me about an hour. And, that means TOTAL TIME!
click country (USA or wherever), hit submit, then click registration (if first CPF), then fill out everything but “voter district”. You need a Brazilian address. They will mail the final card there. However, you receive the number as a printout at the station. That is really all you need. After you fill out this form hit submit again. This time you get a bar code form to print out. Print it.
Just grab a number and then wait. When called, take the form to the attendant and say, “pago CPF”. They will understand you. You only pay R5.80! A small amount. They give you a receipt. https://youtu.be/zklubUIJB0Y
