That hasn't been the experience of some people I know. But these encounters happened in small towns in RJ, Bahia and Goiás where most probably people are not that used to foreign accents as much as in the South. It was as if "We can't understand each other, so no need to communicate" syndrom. I was surprised, it's so unlike friendly, easy going, embracing, welcoming Brazilians. I was quite shocked actually and started looking into it. No answers yet. Anyone?
Last year I met someone from Florianópolis and mentioned the problem and she seemed to think that was more regional, lack of contact and prejudice.
Good that it's not your experience.
