What is all this fuzz about Brazil? I'm no expert on this country, but Brazil lives. With rich and wasted people, next to the extremely poor living in the Favelas. Many live on the brink of extinction. 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.
