I know she doesn't live in a big city but ask her if there is any Exchange place in her city... There are some here in SP that has Western Union in it and she can get the money there. I always go there instead of going to the bank.

And yeah... it is true :P

"Gulp" :unsure: I know there is no place like that in her city, because when I was there visiting we had to go to the bank to exchange my money.

Yes, they're on strike. I dont think everyone is though. Ana works for the federal bank in SP, and I know she went to work today. Usually doesn't last long at all...maybe 2-3 days.

On another note, we finally got our Interview today! December 5th!!!

Hey Carol, yes I live about 15 minutes East of Seattle, in Sammamish. I will certainly tell her you're pretty close. She's been looking for some kind of Brasilian scene in Washington! Talk to you later!

Congrats Ana & Dan!!! :dance:

Bill, thanks for the tip. I've checked, and unfortunetly all agents are Banks in her area... so hopefully it will be a short ordeal, and won't affect us. How are things going with you and Eulalia? Haven't heard from you guys in a while!

hummm.. then let's hope it will be a short strike :)

i'm not gonna bet on it lisz :P - last night nessa and i talked to one of her friends who works at a bank, it don't sound like it's going to be resolved soon.

erik - western union is probably your best bet due to some banks not participating in the strike and some may be strictly western union. your fiance would have to research that and inform you so you'll have more info to go on. hopefully western union is still functioning in her area. best wishes.

oh yeah, as we were leaving Curitiba this morning I could swear I saw one Bradesco bank opened. But when we arrived here my mom said banks are all closed. Maybe they started opening in big cities.
