    Same as Nate, I had the same idea (but with some improvements) this week and was working on that. Nice work it will help lot of travellers.
    I live in Sao Paulo and I usually serve as tourist guide for foreigners friends and for expats or foreigners I meet here in my city and other ones in the country.
    If you need someone in your team to help with tips of Brazil, just let me know! ;)

    This app and site is a really good idea. Would you consider adding South Africa, and more specifically Cape Town or Johannesburg to the list? I would be interested in joining as a local if either of those two places are on the cards… :)
