Even those who know nothing about Brazil are permeated with images of its beautiful beaches and beautiful people. Rio de Janeiro's reputation precedes itself, being the must-see city of any Brazilian visit and also guarantees innumerable awe inspiring moments. It is divided into several areas: Copacabana, Ipanema, Centro, and Leblon. Each of these areas has a distinct flavor to them. Being blessed with talented world class artists like Oscar Niemeyer, Brazil has seen an upsurge in its infrastructure, coupled meticulously with unmatched Parliament and Govt. structures giving a statement similar to the 23rd Century! Brazil occupies nearly 50% of the South American continent. The cuisine in Brazil seems to match the people of this land and is hence one of the most famous in the World. With so much going for them, it’s no wonder that Brazilians say ‘Deus e Brasileiro’ (God is Brazilian). No one would be able to explain this huge mix of natural and cultural riches sprinkled all across the country.
