How many 24 hour Funeral Homes does one city need?

This is something that is so funny to me? Really? How many 24hour funeral homes does one city need? Resende has as many funeral homes as churches. There is a funeral home on every corner there seems.

Funerals are not big business or expensive things like they are in North America. Mind you there some pretty elaborate tombs. But the funeral home and casket is very inexpensive and less decorative than we are used to. They are usually very small shops…so small that caskets are displayed upright for space.

And the funeral car is different too and this one is more elaborate than some.

If I could speak a little more Portuguese I might stop by one of these funeral places and see how it works!

Happy Thursday!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
