VACCINATIION  (1 Answer)

I'm travelling to POA in October and have visited a travel doctor for an advice. They really recommended the Hepatitits A vaccine and yellow fever vaccine. I can't get the yellow fever one as I'm pregnant and that's also a reason why I don't really want the Hep A vaccine either if it's not totally necessary. Has anyone heard there would be some cases in POA of either yellow fever or hepatitis A? With the hep A - from what I'm reading on-line the restaurants seem to be very clean. Is the water chlorinated and safe to drink?

Thank you:-)

Looking for Portuguese Immersion Course & Job Teaching English in Porto Alege near Molinhos do Vento

I think the title says it all. I want to spend a couple months in Porto Alegre learning Portuguese. I'm working on an organic farm (really an Ecovilla and Permaculture site) outside of Buenos Aires curently. I was hoping to find a school where I can study Portuguese near Molinos do Vento as well as a place to stay there - either a homestay or nice hostal. I'm also an English professor so I was considering teaching English there and just trying to learn what I can while doing that. I'm interested being a volunteer in social and environmental programs as well. Porto Alegre looks gorgeous! Much thanks,

Dylan

Where to club this weekend?

I arrived in Porto Alegre 3 weeks ago. Though I've met people to take me out to restaurants, churrasceria (awesome food!!!), bars and Irish pubs, or even underground places that play 80's music, I admit that sure, it is a sweet offer... but I would like to try the clubbing scene. Where's the best club for "electronic" music? Is there a rave coming to town anytime soon?

I welcome any recommendations. More bbq's!!!!

Thanks,
Little dancing Asian... Boogie-on-down...!

Porto Alegre questions  (1 Answer)

I am thinking about leading a team of volunteers from Habitat for Humanity to help build homes for poor residents of Ilha Grande dos Marinheiros. My understanding is that Ilha Grande is close to Porto Alegre. Is that correct? How far apart are they?

I know nothing about Porto Alegre, so I need as much information about what the city is like, how easy it is to get around, how safe it is, what kinds of things there are to do, and whether there is anything nearby where we could take day trips (cultural sites, archeological sites, beaches, museums, beautiful nature, etc). Any help you can give me would be much appreciated. Thank you.
