I spent this past month in Brazil and I took some nice pictures so I’m goin to periodically post some up.
As for my very short evaluation of the country…
As far as politics and economics are concerned, I can’t offer an evaluation but from the little I know… they have been dramatically on the rise for the past 30 years and even more so recently. They are spending 17 billion towards WC 14 and the Olympics in 16 only on mass public transport and that alone is a huge step. They have also efficiently and effectively combated HIV, as part of driving out cartels in the favelas. I’m interested in how the world reacts at both events in the next 10 years and I wish them the best.
Would I return? Certainly. If not to find myself a wife one day (harhar), then I definitely want to visit Rio and Sao Paolo. MAYBE even the Amazon, if I combat my fear of snakes and lizards and all that crazy jungle shit. But yeah, all in all, I found the country very interesting and I would love to learn the language and have a more interactive experience a second time around. Thankfully my VISA is open for the next ten years.
I guess if you have any questions that you can’t find the answers too on Wikipedia, you can ask me.
