Almost everywhere, you cannot feel 100% safe, because people are only people and something may always happen. Still, some places are considered to be more dangerous than the others.
While visiting big cities in Brazil you should stay very careful, e.g., even Brazilians warn foreigners about Rio de Janeiro. I don’t have any bad experience, but I know people who weren’t so lucky.
What’s the most popular sport in Brazil?
-Of course, it’s football.
I should probably just write “there is no Brazil without football”. 😉
However, football came to Brazil only at the end of 19th century.
Copacabana beach is located in Copacabana district of Rio de Janeiro.
I guess, Copacabana is the most famous beach in the world!
One can easily recognize the area by its characteristic promenade (partly seen in today’s picture). Isn’t it a nice pattern?
Some people claim, that the most beautiful beaches in the world are located in Brazil.
I’m not sure, is it true, but there are some very famous Brazilian beaches (not only the ones I’ll show you tomorrow and the day after).
The flag of Brazil (A Auriverde) is one of the better known flags. And there are in Brazil many souvenirs just with the image of the flag. Well, I think the flag is very nice; I’m saying it also as an astronomer. 😉
Sugarloaf is a mountain in Rio de Janeiro, of about half of the height (396 meters) of Corcovado Mountain.
I think, Sugarloaf and Corcovado mountains are must-visit places in Rio; both provide scenic views.
One can take a cable car to reach the summit of Sugarloaf.
Sugarloaf is also popular among the rock climbers.
