How to Spend $2,000 in Your First Month in Brazil, and $5,000 After That
Brazil is one of the richest countries in the world, and its rich people have a way of spending their hard-earned cash.
And while the country’s residents have long had a fondness for luxuries, like expensive cars and fancy homes, it’s the rising cost of food and other basics that has led to a spike in food insecurity.
In Brazil, the country is one the poorest in the Americas and the third-most impoverished in the European Union.
For the past decade, it has been getting a lot of the blame for an economic crisis that has left millions without enough money to buy their way out of poverty.
Here’s how to spend your first month in Brazil and beyond: • Get a new car, a used car, or even a used truck.
• Buy groceries and other necessities at supermarkets and other retailers, especially at small businesses.
• Go for a short walk on the beach.
• Take a tour of the city, if possible.
• See the sights of the beach and beaches in your neighborhood.
• Enjoy a meal with your family at a local restaurant.
• Stay at an Airbnb or hostel.
