Ok. There´s a competition here that gives the winner a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. But how is the city? Hey, we don´t have monkeys on the streets, and carnaval is a week party. Discover here what is myth and what is true.
First of all, Brazil stays in South America, and the language spoken here is the portuguese. (Yeah, not spanish). Yes, we have samba and yes, we have favelas. But this isn´t the whole thing.
This is Sugar Loaf, or as we say here in Brazil, “Pão de Açúcar”. Tourists use to go there. The view from there is beautiful and you can take a lot of grate photos with your lomo. Another great tourist place to go is Corcovado (that huge Jesus statue on the top of a hill). Just open your arms and your customized postcard will be a click away!
Ok. And the beach? Oh, yeah! You must go to Ipanema. Or you can find other beaches, those almost forgotten by the world … Hahaha! Just kidding!
Brazilian people use to be nice. If you don´t speak portuguese, you can speak english and a lot of people will understand you.
Almost all the things you have heard about violence is true, but don´t be silly, han? Just avoid strange places. I have lived here my whole life and I´ve never been robbed. Tcharam!
But if you do not win the competition, don´t be sad. You can come on vacations. I’ll be glad to show you the city!
