This book is about my experiences in Brazil. I am a teacher from the US. I met a wonderful lady from Brazil. After we met I realized she was my soul mate. After we got married, she was home sick for her native country, so I followed her to Brazil. After living here awhile, I decided it would be a good thing to write my memoirs. Since I have been here I learned and discovered many things about the people and culture that I want to share with others. Much of the culture and information stays in the country and many tourists and people that want to become citizens really do not know the true Brazil. This is the first book you will read about Brazil, that will depict the true experiences of the harsh life here. If you are looking to read a book about Brazil, that is full of roses then this is the wrong book for you. Everything you will read is true stories of realistic events that happen here and go unnoticed by the outside world. None of the information is exaggerated or sugar coated. I hope this book will give you a real insight of life here. At least when you read this book, you will not be as surprised as I was when I got here. I hope this book will give you valuable information about life here.
