The best places to visit

Theres no place on earth like Brazil. It has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, some of the busiest, most exciting cities, as well as the biggest area of unexplored rainforest on the planet. Most people live near the sea so there is a lot

of empty space. The country is, of course, enormous. In fact, Brazil is the fifth-largest country in the world. It covers half of South America and has borders with every South American country except Chile and Ecuador. It has 19 cities and more than 170 million people. Brazil is a fascinating place to visit. The people are warm and friendly and they generally welcome tourists to their country. Traditionally, Brazilians give presents to their hosts when they visit people, so its a good idea if you do the same! Typical gifts include flowers, sweets, and champagne. When we think of Brazil, we think of football, music, dancing, and beaches. The most popular pastimes will not come as a surprise: playing football, listening to music, dancing, walking on the beach, or just talking. Family life is very important and eating together is always special. The most important meal of the day is at about 1.00 p.m. The evening meal doesnt begin until about 9.00 or 10.00 p.m. And then the parties begin. A party can start at any time and for any reason, and go on until the early hours of the morning. Nobody worries about work the next day. How do Brazilians stay awake with such a lifestyle? Well, Brazil also produces some of the best coffee in the world!
