I’m an American expat living in Brazil with my two kids. We’ve had quite the adventure over the past 4 years, building a farm from the ground up, raising my kids biculturally, exploring our many new communities (we’ve moved around a lot!), and trying to survive off grid for half of it!
Note: While the post dates are back in the day, this blog is not inactive! For my own journal I put the real dates (when the event happened or when I wrote the post) for the publishing date but most have actually gone live as of 2015. Remember we were without electricity and while I tried to keep up with writing by charging the laptop on my car battery, most of the time my kids won out and used the juice to watch a coveted DVD!
