Brazil has a harsh political undertone, but is fronted with beautiful beaches and football fans. Rio is the epicenter of Brazil, but the other coastal towns operate at a much slower pace. The beach goers are tanned and self-confident. The favelas in the city are a tragic result of corruption and wealth inequality, but despite this the residents are friendly and welcoming.
