My name is Dona Gretchen and I am new to the site.
I am an Estonian and it has been a bit more than two and a half years that I have been living in São Paulo now. The adaption process has probably been one of the hardest things I have had to do in my life. Brazilian culture is almost the perfect opposite of Estonian, especially in the workplace. However, now I am already starting to see the fruits and really enjoy what Brazil has to offer.
Talking with other expats, I have understood that most of us go through very similar difficulties. This is why I am writing a blog called Living It Brazilian livingitbrazilian.wordpress.com sharing some stories and insights about adapting in Brazil. I get lots of comments from people with their similar stories as well, so the blog has proved to be a great medium for sharing experience and support
I am also on Facebook and Instagram.
Please feel free to check it out and let me know what you think!
