I'm very happy to find this community on the internet. First of all, I'd like to apologize for any erros in my english, because I'm actually brazilian and doesn't have much confidence in my typing quality. So, please, bypass my linguistic faults
Anyway, I've been studying and practicing for about 3 years here in my town, Belo Horizonte. Unfortunatelly, we don't have many options of groups to study the Dhamma, but there are a few people interested that I try to make contact. Also, there are not so many titles available in portuguese. About 90% of them is introductory studies or what-is-buddhism manuals. Most of my books are, because of that, purchased in Amazon.com or WisdomPubs.org. The real problem is that, because of the shipping, I always pay double the prices.
I don't wanna take your time anymore. It's a real gift to have you friends by the internet.
Please, let me know if some of you need something from this part of the world!
