If you`re ever in a waiting room in Brazil, you`re bound to have copies of CARAS lying around. CARAS means faces (or, in slang, it could mean “guys” or people). It`s the Brazilian version of Hello! or OK magazine, filled with pictuers of dream houses, weddings, fashion and celebrities.

The CARAS website has some good content for all ages and if Hello! magazine was your thing in English you should definitely check this out to help your Portuguese:

What I really, really want, though, is a link to CARAS International which is a weekly publication from the same people with bilingual English-Portuguese articles about celebrities from around the world. I`ve only seen the print edition (pictued above) so keep an eye out for it if you`re in an airport somewhere, or in a Brazilian waiting room.

But, I can`t find an online edition for CARAS International… If anyone knows of one, post the link here please?
