Something about ourselves
I am 44 yr old journalist from Ireland living in Brazil for past 18 years and founder of the gringoes.com website. I lived in Paris for a number of years before moving to Brazil, but my French is a little rusty. Married to Rose, a Brazilian lawyer, and we have twins (six-year old), Ryan and Naomi, who study at the French Lycee Pastuer school in Sao Paulo. Would like to spend as much time as possible in France (or French speaking country) so that my children can be exposed to the French language and culture. We had a very enjoyable home exchange experience to the south of France in July 2010. We are open to simultaneous or non-simultaneous exchanges. We would in fact enjoy sharing our house and vice versa, in order to have the extra advantage of getting to know our hosts and be able to show them more of Sao Paulo/Brazil.
