I want to expand the reader's view of Brazil by introducing the gem that is GoiŠs, a state rich in biodiversity and natural beauty; while giving any insider's tips I can. I would love to have had a manual or CliffsNotes on how to navigate the cultural quirks & inherent differences that can make for major party fouls. (It would have made life a whole lot easier!) Since I couldn't save face for myself, I'd like to do what I can for the next unsuspecting expat. Although helping everyone else avoid these pitfalls will undoubtedly leave me looking like the most dysfunctional foreigner ever... I'm glad to be of service.

Amaris is pronounced: ă-mŭ-rĭs (ou em PortuguÍs: "e-mor-is"). I'm a native Texan (Austinite) married to a Goiano. Although we arrived together, I was pretty much left to get into all sorts of new adventures on my own. My blog, "Go Goiano," is about the state of GoiŠs... the Goiano culture... and what I have discovered here.
