Daily Rio Life is a blog written by a Canadian expat woman who has been living in Rio de Janeiro for two years. She writes about her life in Brazil and covers topics such as preparing a move and choosing a neighbourhood. She also offers a shopping guide, and tips to enjoy the city, for example, restaurants to enjoy… or to avoid!

One of my favourite posts deals with the psychological exam you have to take to get a Brazilian driver’s licence. It’s surreal! Very fun to read, I guess not much fun to actually sit that type of exam! You can read this post here. A useful blog for anyone wanting to move to Rio!

Update (29.09.10): The post originally stated that DLR is from Calgary. Corrected following comment below.
