Winter in Brazil (August)

by jelefant Online Now Jul 9, 2006 at 9:26 AM

I'll be spending 3 weeks in Salvador, Brazil in August. Do women wear white dresses, pants and skirts in winter (August) in Brazil or do they favor darker colors?

Also, should I buy travelers checks or rely on ATM machines. Obrigada!

    Please don't worry about dress. ATMs, for sure.

    No problem there - you will find that most people avoid lighter colors just when it rains (very sensible precaution - light shirts may become transparent in the rain and white pants show every spot of dirty water spattered on them!) and not because of the temperature.
