As we inch ever closer to our one year mark and look to bring you the latest news from across South America, we are pleased as punch to announce that, starting next week, we’ll be bringing you dispatches from across Brazil.  Our talented new writer, Mari Rodriguez, is in place and, having lived through Carnaval to tell about it, she’s ready to give you the dirt on all things Brazilian.  From chef interviews to insider tips, breaking news on what’s happening and where you need to be, Mari is the perfect resource for news you’ve come to expect from Como Sur, now from Brazil.  It’s a big country and there’s so much going on but, as usual, we’ll work tirelessly day in and day out to make sure you’re in the loop.  Bem-vindo ao Brasil!
