What is the percentage or population of Brazilians living in your city? Also, is it less popular for Brazilians to immigrate to the U.S. than other Latin Americans?

The local Brazilian Coummunity Center estimates there are 30,000 to 40,000 in Metro Atlanta, mostly in suburban Cobb County.

We are seeing increasing ties to Brazil here, with daily nonstops to Sao Paulo and Rio as well as a new Consulate opening soon.

Why are they choosing Cobb County instead Atlanta proper?

You know out all skylines, I have never seen Sao Paulo's until I saw the movie Blindness. I think Sao Paulo has a very intriguing skyline. I think there should be a thread devoted to it and more pictures of it. When I first saw it I could not figure out what city it was, and I can tell most of the cities of the world by just looking at a building or two, but Sao Paulo has a unique skyline that I've never seen before!:tup: :drummer: :tup:

I'm not sure what the population is here in Portland but my guess is that it is no larger than 1,000-2,000.

Anyhow, there are many brasileiros in Honolulu in the North Shore area and areas near Waikiki (many hang out in an area near Queens Beach). There's also a Brazilian Cultural Center, local Weekly TV and radio shows, futevolei club, soccer clubs, consulate, festivals/parades, bands, church, etc. There's also a rapid growing community on Maui.

I'm not sure of the exact numbers in Hawaii because they often blend in with the local Portuguese population as there are thousands (+60,000) of descendents from Portugal and Cape Verde. However, I do know that many have arrived illegally (or overstay visas) because they've been among the many in recent years being deported along with other South & Central Americans and Europeans in the state working in construction, retail or hospitality.

This pic is of one of the popular spots near Waikiki that they hang out.

Anyway, the majority that do migrate to the U.S. settle in New York, Miami, and Boston. There are many that migrate to other places of course but the overwhelming majority choose the three I just mentioned. They also do secondary migrations because i've known two families personally that started off in New York before finally settling in Hawaii and that's not unusual nationally.

hmmm... CENU complex... this pic is old btw, the suspended bridge in front of it isnt even being built yet!

also, this shows like a VERY SMALL part of the skyline, kilometers away from downtown.

I also suggest you watching the Amazing Race episode where they fly in helicopters over São Paulo.

I've been noticing a lot more Brazilians here in Los Angeles. It sometimes is hard to see who's Brazilian or not because the country is so diverse. Most of the Brazilians I know here are either Black or Pardo. I don't know their exact numbers though.

Fogo de Chao is a national chain, they have it in a bunch of cities. Here in Philly, we have a pretty sizable Brazilian population in the Northeast. Estimates are 15,000....most coming from Minas Gerais and Goiás states that tend to me on the rural side. Here's a good article about the neighborhood they've settled:

I am from Sao Paulo, Living in Miami and everyday i go shopping i hear people speaking in Portuguese (Which you can't even compare to the amount speaking Spanish, more then half the people speak spanish)


I was surprised when i didn't see Sao Paulo in the top ten list for most buildings and when i searched for it on skyscraperpage.com i got this ( http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?10=2 ) 306 buildings I can see much more then that from my grandmas house there!
Emporis lists 5,453 buildings and 556 U/C which is correct ( http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/ci/bu/sk/?id=101076 )

Sao Paulo probably had more then 306 buildings in 1947 let alone 2008 - Look at the pictures from that date: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=161713

*(I sent a email early 2008 requesting a change in the Sao Paulo building count but nothing happened)

stop being foolish. Emporis building count is also incredibly wrong. São Paulo has over 40 thousand buildings over 12 floors, according to a list SSC forumer Cello got from a friend who works in the City Hall.

But you must remember that NEITHER Emporis nor SSP can have the correct lists JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT. Compiling such lists is an incredibly hard work. Do you think that just because you sent an email to SSP, the SSP owner (who maintains the forum in his spare time) will hire like 50 different people to go to São Paulo and compile a complete list??


Both SSP and Emporis lists depends on CONTRIBUTORS! Emporis has about 5 brazilian editors, thats why they were able to compile a list of 5 thousand buildings. If you want both lists to grow, HELP them grow by working on compiling such lists.

too many brazilians in London. Maybe its good for them, but it sucks for brazilian tourists.

I mean, I dont want to hear portuguese in every corner while visiting a foreign city!


Plus, when I was in London I was in a bus and reading a Tube map to discover what station should I enter to reach Canary Wharf.

And there was this hottie with big tits sitting on my side, and I said that to my friend, in portuguese "olha os peitos dessa mina ali" (look at that chick tits!). A few moments later, I asked him "do you think we should get out here to reach "x" station?

And the "english" hottie answered in perfect brazilian portuguese "no, wait for the next bus stop". :haha:

here in toronto, i have personally counted 294 brazilians. (mostly from bumper sticker flags)
altho, i have also counted well over 1000 'portuguesians'(?) -whom oscillate between being this or that -especially during soccer season -which seems perpetual -for them.

While there are no precise estimates of how many Brazilians are living in Salt Lake City, the Utah Brazilian News and the General Consulate of Brazil in Los Angeles estimate that there are approximately 10,000 living in the State of Utah. This is in addition the the 30,000 Utahns who speak Portuguese, primarily because a large number of Utahns have lived in Brazil for Mormon missions and have learned the language and come to love the country, its culture and its food.

Salt Lake City - Brazil ties are also evident in that Brazil is home to seven Mormon temples (it is a high growth area for the Mormon Church), and in that Salt Lake City is one of only 18 American cities that is home to a Brazilian Consulate.

Salt Lake City is also home to the Utah Brazilian Festival, with an annual attendance of around 12,000.

Here is a quick shot of part of this year's events:

I'm guessing Brazilians are more receptive to mormonism since the mormons try to convert absolutely everyone, but why I don't know.

I estimate there are 3000-5000 Brazilians living in Kansas City.
Many are students at University of Missouri @Kansas City
Some are musicians and contribute to the local jazz and arts scene.
We also have 5-10 Brazilian owned restaurants and markets.

I don't even know... They say the economy is still bad in northeastern Brazil where life would be rough, so a lot of people from there would try to move to French Guiana where welfare is kind of better, although nothing much comfy, huh. There's some crime, racism and social issues in French Guiana as well, but less violently than in Brazil.

In metropolitan France and Paris in particular, you don't meet many of them. Or they must easily blend with locals anyway. For example, I know a couple of guys from Chile and Peru. They had no problem to settle down here at all. They're just pretty much like locals so you don't take notice. Also generally speaking, the South Americans would obviously rather go to the US when they need to get better off, there are not so many of them in Europe, except for Spain for an obvious linguistic convenience.

seriously, never heard of Brazilians going to French Guiana, specially due to welfare. But I have heard of people from french Guiana entering Brazil (better job opportunities, even in the northeast)

Nearly a third of French Guiana's population is Brazilian immigrants, many of whom are illegals. They come to our country primarily for gold mining that is more flexible on our side than on the other of the border. And definitely for welfare indeed since in French Guiana as in any territory of the French Republic, even illegals get a free access to healthcare. Then of course, somebody has to pay for it. Well, we do, nationwide...

Enjoy your job opportunities, huh? Lol

:rolleyes:

your ironic comment shows that you know nothing Jon Snow. Everyone, even illegals, also have free access to public healthcare in Brazil. Free healthcare in Brazil covers even plastic surgery, ultra expensive drugs, sex change operations, etc.

the quality of free health care fluctuates a lot between hospitals. Some of the best in the country are public, as well as some of the worst.

so the question is not that Guyana has free healthcare, because that they also have in Brazil. Its a question of knowing how good are Guyana hospitals.

and yes, also paid by brazilian taxes, which are some of the highest in the world, european levels, strangling a developing economy. So get off your high horse, will ya?

Whoa, some of you guys are still upset at Europeans, we keep noticing... You're wrong. The better you do, the better our own opportunities over there for real, eh. And we certainly wouldn't spit at more Brazilian investors in France, believe it. So get wealthier, that's all my sincere wishes to you.

BTW that's right, I didn't know the Brazilians paid for some universal healthcare system. We know how costly it is over here too, but the question is how and what we'd do without it. It seems pretty unfair and risky to let lower incomes and the unemployed pay for their health on their own. And in fact, as you surely know, right? we've got quite a lot of low incomes and more and more unemployed to deal with too. Time is rough over here as well. So you know, you've just got these 2 obvious options left.

1 - maintaining the system just about the way it is at the cost of your private sector competitiveness. That requires to be able to develop some higher quality goods and services to remain competitive, like the Germans partly do for instance. Although even in their country, it's far from easy for all, I hear. Their overall quality of life is sometimes questionable in some respects. Too many low income "poor workers" in particular, they say.

Or 2 - reforming your healthcare system, just selling it all to your private sector to relieve it and ease their investments, which could create lots of jobs indeed. That's closer to the US libertarian way, but that's what we French won't do. How could the poor afford healthcare while they're still jobless or something? Idk. I don't think we'd ever give up on universal healthcare paid by taxes, it's just too risky.

We don't pay for plastic surgery, though! Isn't it silly? At some point, you need to be selective and pay for what's really essential only.

I think we went somewhat off-topic, but whatever. :haha:

I am not upset about europeans. I am upset at you for your previous post suggesting Brazil did not have public healthcare.

From WHERE, precisely, did you saw anything regarding I am upset at Europeans?

and what exactly do you mean with "still upset at europeans"?? Considering Brazil was settled by europeans, speaks an european language, follows an european religion (mostly), uses Roman Law, etc, etc, I see no reason to be upset at Europeans of the past. It would be like being upset about your own ancestors. (although that happens a lot even in europe, like French rooting for Asterix while despising the romans, as if over the centuries many romans had not mixed with gauls, plus all the culture Gaul acquired from Rome, and even the french language)


... You're wrong. The better you do, the better our own opportunities over there for real, eh. And we certainly wouldn't spit at more Brazilian investors in France, believe it. So get wealthier, that's all my sincere wishes to you.

how is that related to anything I said?

that's the problem being a poor country. You are even more trapped between the two. Too much poor population to let them fend for themselves, too much poor population creating a burden on the private sector with high taxes... a burden that is HIGHER than on rich countries exactly because yes, the private sector IS less competetive because of worse ports, worse roads, less credit, smaller internal market for many types of products, etc.



We don't pay for plastic surgery, though! Isn't it silly? At some point, you need to be selective and pay for what's really essential only.

actually, plastic surgery is paid only in cases where people had their faces ruined by some accident.

but sex change is considered plastic surgery and is covered, because GLB groups were adamant that it was psychological terror for a woman to be "trapped" in the body of a man, or something like it... so it was considered a matter of mental health...
