What is all this hype about Brazil? I'm no expert on this country, but Brazil is a great destination. With its sheer size and diverse nature, tropical climate, beaches, carnevals, rich and poor people, Brazil has someting to offer to most tourists. Together these facts make this country so colorful. And of course, Rio de Janeiro is a very beautiful city, with the blue ocean, white beaches and green mountains. It is probably one of the most scenic big cities of the world. Dangerous also, with all the crime.

Here are a few images from our visity to Rio de Janeiro in 2005.
