My wife is being transferred to Sao Paulo (or, less likely, Rio) in the new year. She's British and speaks Portuguese, and I have dual US-UK citizenship but don't speak the language. We will be moving with our small children and dog.
I have a few questions:
- How safe is Sao Paulo, especially for women and children? - Are there specific (and safer) areas in which expats live? - How large is the American and British expat community? - How difficult would it be for me to find an IT position without knowing Portuguese?
