I love the internet. I love how I can find answers so quickly, keep in touch with my family and friends, entertain my children, find recipes, and get obsessive about using recycled materials to make light fixtures. We're a little bit addicted. But at least I've moved past the denial stage, right?
One thing (among many!) that has taken some adjusting to, is the lack of online shopping we've found. As far as I can remember, there are really only two places that we've been able to use the internet to save money, time, transportation, and a frustrated Portuguese phone call: ordering our TV/internet/Phone service, and buying a wedding present for Beatrice's teacher. Here's my internet shopping wish list:
grocery delivery (so far it I think it only exists in Rio and São Paulo)
beauty products (like the BodyShop!)
affordable clothing (maybe if I could even just find an actual store for this...)
Anyone have any websites they want to share that would meet these needs? Any helpful hints for online shopping in Brazil?
