Wow!! After 13 years of touring the world, I’m lastly on my option to Brazil, the most important nation in South America! I’ve wished to go there for so long as I can keep in mind, and this journey is much more particular for me, as Brazil is my landmark 80th nation! Be a part of me as I journey to Brazil for the primary time on an epic highway journey by way of 5 Brazilian capitals!

As all the time, my journey started in my second dwelling, Miami Worldwide Airport. I had put Brazil off for some time due to security considerations, however my pals Guilherme and Rafa from Rio4Fun and Rio4Food assured me every little thing can be OK with me touring with a digital camera by way of the nation. They’d be displaying me round for my complete journey, and I couldn’t wait!

São Paulo is Brazil’s monetary middle and largest metropolis and is positioned within the southeastern a part of the nation. Jesuit missionaries based town in 1554, which is now dwelling to over 12 million individuals and identified for its iconic structure. However whereas it’s the most important metropolis in Brazil, it’s not the capital—that’s Brasilia!

A whole lot of the individuals with cash within the metropolis really get round of their helicopters as a result of the site visitors is so unhealthy! I had realized fairly a little bit of Portuguese, the native language, shortly as a result of I communicate each Italian and Spanish, that are very comparable.

We drove alongside a river till we arrived within the metropolis. We handed a German-looking church. I might see a lot of buildings, the metro, and many site visitors. We purchased some bottled water from a vendor alongside the facet of the highway. There was a lot of graffiti on the buildings. Lots of the buildings had been colonial-style.

There’s loads of distinction in Brazil. There are locations which are unsafe for vacationers to go to alone, whereas others are luxurious and corresponding to Fifth Avenue in New York. What I noticed of town as we drove by way of jogged my memory of Mexico Metropolis!

There, I met Guilherme. We instantly began speaking about a number of the wonderful meals I hoped to eat! However first, I wanted some Brazilian espresso! Brazil produces probably the most espresso beans on the planet.
