Brazil
Most of people see Brazil as a country with beautiful beaches, pretty girls, violence, much beer or caipirinha, crazy parties (like Carnival)and great soccer players but it's not like that! If you ask a person what's the capital of Brazil probably he/she will say it's Rio de Janeiro or even "Buenos Aires" (?). I know it's not everybody's point of view but I just want to show poeple that Brazilians are not that mean and crazy.
Once a girl asked me if I had TV and computer at home (come on, did she think we were talking by telepathy? o.O), I was just like: OMG! I feel sorry for her because she said her teacher told her about it. What kind of teacher says there are only indigenous people in Brazil? I'm still looking for an answer...
I know there are many violent people here but it's like everywhere. The biggest problem is that only negative things about my country are shown on TV. Do journalists write about Santos Dumont (yes, he invented the plane and the writswatch)? About Itaipu Binacional (yes, it's the greatest hydroeletric power plant the world has ever known, the construction iron and steel utilised in Itaipu would be sufficient to build 380 Eiffel Towers, can you imagine that?)? I'm not putting the blame on the journalists (sorry if you thought so)...I just cannot explain it xD
We are normal people, like you who live in Europe, Asia or Africa. Ohh, just wanna say something else: America is a continent, not a single country. I know you learnt at school that North America + Central America + South America = America ;)
As you already know Brazilian population is really mixed! There are afro americans (6,3%); caucasians (49,9%); indigenous (0,4%; pardos (42,6% [you know...when the person is not black and not caucasian]) and asians (0,5%). Imagine a place with all those cultures, it's Brazil :D
Well, that's it for now. If you want more information or photos of nice places, just tell me. I'll help you with much pleasure ;)
P.S.: Sorry for the English mistakes and for those ones who don't need to read this.
In my opinion people don't respect each other beacause they aren't open-minded, just leave prejudice and live the differences! Thanks for reading this text.


For people who like Club Music this is Ravene Voluz, a very famous Brazilian DJ. If you go to Ibiza be sure you'll listen to her :)

Capoeira is a blend of martial arts, games, and dance originated in Brazil. Participants form a roda (circle) and take turns playing instruments, singing, and sparring in pairs in the center of the circle. The game is marked by fluid acrobatic play, feints, and extensive use of groundwork, as well as sweeps, kicks, and headbutts.

"As a humanist I accept to defend the internationalization of the world. So long as the world treats me as a Brazilian, I will fight so that our Amazon Region will be ours. Only ours." Cristovam Buarque

What's your opinion about the Internationalization of Amazon?
