Is there anyone living in Brasilia who is British? I recently moved here and havent met one foreigner yet.
Hi there, welcome to Brasília:-)) well if I am not wrong there are many adds at South Lake with the name of some portughese schools for foreigns. If you live in that area you will easily see them. As far as I know at American School(http://www.eabdf.br/) (I know that they are not bristish:-) they have meetings, appoitments, movies which the purpose is to involve english comunity in Brasilia. Of course your embassy (someone already gave you details about it) can help you more. Hope to help you somehow! Feel free to ask me anytime! Good luck!!
Thanks for the info, i did register already but didnt see to find it much help, the guy said there would be a meeting for English people but that was a while ago.
I will keep listening on the streets, and then jump the first Brit i see.

Travel Tips for Brasília
Hey, Brasilia is cool! It's...
Hey, Brasilia is cool! It's modern, vibrant, its wide roads offer peace, comfort and speed!
It has one of the largest number of Olympic-sized swimming pools per capita in the world!
When visiting Brasilia, YOU MUST visit:
1) ACADEMIA DE TENIS, for a movie, leisure of a good meal at 'Francisco Restaurant'
2) the city SHOPPING CENTRES, such as Parkshopping, Patio Brasil, Brasilia Shopping.
3) the TV TOWER, for spectacular views of the centre of administration buildings and local weekend market! Best friend Cris and Ricardo impersonating Angels to help people cross the extremely wide avenues of Eixao Norte!
I love Eixao, one of the most exciting places to be on a Sunday!
Pirenopolis is a charming small twon about 160 km away from Brasilia. It could be an option for a one-day trip but just keep in mind that the road to there is in terrible condition.
Otherwise, as I already said, the town itslef is rather pleasant with its cobbled streets and colonial houses. I had the feeling that if I take out the palm trees it would look a bit like a small Bulgarian town, so I felt quite cosy there.
Two things that I noticed:
- the restaurant offer delicious and at the same time cheap food, and
- it is a good place for buying silver. the prices are definitly good and the work is fine.
Tancredo Neves Memorial
Built three decades after the inauguration of Brasília, the Panteão em Memória de Tancredo Neves -- also known as the Panteão da Pátria -- pays tribute to the hero who led Brazil's return to democracy after 21 years of military rule.
Tancredo Neves, among the most revered figures in Brazilian history, was elected president to end the dictatorship -- but died shortly before he was to be inaugurated.
This shrine includes both religious figures and photographs and other memorabilia of the great man.
I probably wouldn't recommend visiting Brasilia in a short trip to Brazil, but if you're there anyway, or have tons of time, it's an interesting place. The architecture is world-famous, and it's fun to see. If you're flying through anyway, spend a day sightseeing before heading out.
"Brasilia national park"
If you have time, stop by Brasilia national park on the edge of the city. Capuchin monkeys are everywhere, raiding picnics. This one got ahold of some cheetos.
The capital Brasília
I lived here from 1993 to 1995 and been there twice since.
Brasília is a planned city from 1960. It's atracts people interested in architecture. It can be a tourist trap if you're not into that. I had a great time there although !!!
Lucio Costa was the urbanist and Oscar Niemeyer was the architect who designed the main buldings.
I'll show you only pics so far...
Have a look at the travelogue for historic pictures.
