Search Green Valley Brazil on youtube and that should pretty much answer it.

3g flat for cell is 50c/day but limited to like 20mb or something with TIM
a thing called web infinity modem that you can hook up with your computer is 2real/day

i got the one from TIM but its pretty useless for grinding here in balneario. not sure about other cities though.

been here a month now and despite low season its just awesome. seems like all the grinders here moved away though. I met one of the last but he quit poker as well and moved north.

Where did everyone go? Do you know enough to rank the brazilian cities by number of poker players? I'm so excited to move to brazil.

I was reading you blog about how easy it is to meet people in Brazil. Can you tell me what level of portuguese you can speak?

Re: Balneário Camboriú (Brazil) - A great place for poker players.

oh nice, forgot about that blog, gonna update it today. im fluent in portuguese, which makes things a lot easier. i think the biggest thing was me moving here alone so I really had to make some effort.

as I said before, I dont know about a community here. I asked in the brazilian poker forum maisEV and found one guy who already moved away. the guy that started this thread isnt living here anymore either.

Any local guys willing to trade their cash for merge/stars money? Will pay small vig. I live in floripa but travel to BC quite often. I also can get a ton of references.

Re: Balneário Camboriú (Brazil) - A great place for poker players.

if u mean your paying cash for stars money i could do that. somehow thats what most people are looking for here.

Re: Balneário Camboriú (Brazil) - A great place for poker players.

also would like to ask, maybe someone can help here:

im looking for an internal ssd hard drive for my notebook. (hm2 is too slow) been to 2 stores and they said they cant even order one. checked dell.brazil and cant choose details of notebooks like i could with dell.germany etc. would be great if someone knows an online shop or hiow to get those specific harddrives.
my line would be amazon.com and just pay the extra shipping costs. did that with a specific mountainbike tool and took about 10 days, not sure if they tay electronics though.
im extending my stay here so cant wait till i get to europe.

Re: Balneário Camboriú (Brazil) - A great place for poker players.

We're at least 3 poker players going to BC and Floripa first week of January and staying at least 3months. Two of us stayed in florianopolis this year from beginning of february to late march with ~20 other poker players. We really enjoyed having a big group of people and since we're only 3 confirmed so far going this early we would like to get to know other english speaking poker players in the area. Feel free to shoot me a pm!

Since we're expert at getting scammed by basically every landlord we've had in brazil any tips on how to fix a nice house/apartment would be very much appreciated as well =)

What are the locals like in this area? A lot of poverty or more affluent? Are there street markets? Was thinking about coming down for 2 months.
