Very expensive cost of living, currency's value or the power of acquisition of the reais currency, is very close of the US dollar $3.75 reais to $1 dollar. Local's survive on a $ 1000 reais monthly, when prices are Equal to the US markets, Poverty is well notice, corrupted government is very obvious, stilling the country's richness is there way of life, marking division's of classes where the poor it's left behind. where the rich is above the law.
