World Social Forum - commuting from outside the city

by maracatu Online Now Jan 7, 2005 at 9:43 AM

Hi! I'm thinking about staying at a hostel in Granado during the World Social Forum in Porto Alegre. Is too far for me to travel to Porto Alegre everyday, both ways? Can anyone tell me more about Granado? Thanks! It will be my first time in Brazil and have already noticed that not many people speak English....better get out my Portuguese books!! :)

    Distance between Porto Alegre and Gramado is 131km (82 miles)...if it's to far for everyday commuting it'll be up to you. Gramado it's a lovelly small town (population of about 30K people) built up by germans who came to Brazil. There is good home made style chocolats, good restaurants, several hotel options, nice people, and good weather (a bit cool for me).
