There is so much I loved about Brazil when I was there last year.

But prices are unbelievable

My stepson has asked us to buy him some Carrera Aviator sunglasses, over here in Ireland (via ebay) ~€85 which is $R 206.978. In Brazil you are paying about $R 450 - 500 for a pair.

An Xbox 360 is about 3x the price of it in Ireland

I dread to think what music gear costs.


And we think we get it pretty bad here in Ireland compared to the UK and especially the US

The problem is the distance. Products from Europe are expensive because of shipping issues, products from USA are not that expensive. For instance a xbox 360 costs something like 400 usd. it also depends where you buy it.
Instruments and gear are quite overrated, eg: a100 watts mesa boogie rectifier costs 3000 usd in here!!! sad.gif

Electronics are pretty cheap in the states. You can get a basic xbox new for

$200 U.S.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Microsoft+-+Xb...p;skuId=1162184

for $400 U.S. you can get the super deluxe model with kinect kit.

But yeah, some things are alway crazy like a TRIPLE RECTIFIER smile.gif
