Default Hi, am again in the forum since long time


I was for long time not in the forum, too much things were happen. My life has changed now. Now I am retired since Oct. 1st 2019 and could apply the visa for retired persons for Brazil and my wife also got one visa for family members for Brazil. I have now rented my double houses and my yard in Hamburg in Germany to one young couple and their parents and also to my neighbors. And we moved on April 28th to Brazil, since April 29th we are living in Brazil.

We registered our visas at the Policia Federal in Bauru on May 24th and got protocols of the apply the CRNM (cédula de identidade de imigrante). It will take usually 30 days to get the CRNM. When we get the CRNM then we will have our visas extended by the Policia Federal. With residence permit.

I saw now Banana Mil Dedos and Banana Azul in the Mercadolivre, I will order plants in the southern spring, in September at the begin of the rainy season. Banana Mil Dedos is the other name for Thousand Fingers, finally I will get Thousand Fingers in Brazil, it is my dream! Banana Azul is also one other name for Ice Cream! Also I will get Ice Cream finally in Brazil. The import ban for banana plants to Brazil was for me one problem, but now I saw Thousand Fingers and Ice Cream on the Brazilian market, it is new for me! I will try to get plants! Now I can give focus to my garden in Brazil, my plants will now feel better with more water during the drought season and love of me! I will take more time for my garden in Brazil, it was formerly impossible as I had one job in Germany and had to work and stay in Germany. Now it has changed all, I gave my job up because of my health reasons and retired and reached the conditions for one visa for retired persons with resident permit for Brazil.

In the future I will post more in the forum and share the update photos of my bananas in my chácara.

Best wishes
