I hope someday to visit your great country. The cities I wish to see are Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Brasilia. My wife wishes to cruise the Amazon from Manaus.

Someday!!!

:lol:

Brazil has great tropical forests with many exotic and dangerous animals. Yes'. I'd like to go one day. But please... I implore you... do NEVER post links like that again... they only make my reptile/spider loving side itch.

I'm depressed now. The fact that I'm in school may be adding to that depression though :P

FunkyJunc, did you get the CDīs I sent you?? Has it been one month already??

Bart, I live in Brasília, my brother lives close to Rio de Janeiro

get on a plane and come here spend some dollars, man!

just be careful: Rio de Janeiro is very dangerous. Iīm not kidding.

São Paulo is amazing, very very big city, kind of like NYC, but with a different style

I love there

and Brasília is interesting if you like architecture (is that spelled right?), it is a very calm city, may get boring after 20 years living here :lol: but just for a few days or weeks, it is a nice place to know

but what I really find AMAZING are the beaches we have: hundreds and hundreds of miles along the coast, with beaches as amazing as the ones I posted above

about the forests: many people think thatīs all we have... When I was in Pittsburgh, some people asked me if we had cars here

yes, we have forests, but we are not monkeys :roll:

I know that... but South-America in general has an enormous rainforest. And I wanna go there just for the animals. Just as I want to go to madagascar for the wildlife there. I don't really care for great architecture, I prefer the animals.

ok, thatīs fair, I wasnīt saying you are that kind of people

I would like to visit the Pantanal and the Amazon someday, also

I was just saying that it impresses me that some people are so narrow minded that they think only USA, Europe and maybe Japan have industries, cars and citys

the rest of the world would be something like a big Busch Gardens :roll:

There's a rumour that when George W. Bush visited Brazil for the first time, when he met the President/king/UberDude, he said "there are black people in brazil?"

Yeah... I think Bush would be capable of two such stupid mistakes.

president!

and believe me, our president is much worse than Bush

the guy didnīt even go to college

he makes so many mistakes speaking (Portuguese, he doesnīt speak any other languages) that sometimes I ask myself if he really knows how to read and write

anyway, remember that the beaches in the northeast of Brazil are amazing, and come here spend your dollars :green:

President... Wasn't really sure how your country works. Sorry about that

Maybe... but your president can't send 150.000 soldiers to invade another country so I'm not really afraid of your president (no offense intended)

yes, my country is not powerful like the USA

our president (Lula) is stupid, but harmless

still, I that does NOT mean he is good

and Pete, I should really learn how to make money and stop doing these things for free :lol: :lol:
