About the author (2004)

A native of California, Shawn Blore has lived and worked in a half-dozen countries and traveled in 40 more (but who’s counting?). Now a resident of Vancouver, Shawn is an award-winning magazine writer and the author of Vancouver: Secrets of the City and co-author of Frommer’s Vancouver & Victoria, Frommer’s South America, and Frommer’s Portable Rio de Janeiro.

Alexandra de Vries made her first journey to Brazil at the ripe old age of 1 month (alas, few of her food reviews from that trip survive). In the years since, Alexandra has returned many times to travel, explore, and live in this amazing country. Alexandra co-writes Frommer’s Vancouver & Victoria—about her favorite place to live—and Frommer’s South America and Frommer’s Rio de Janeiro—about her favorite places to visit.
