That they are either going to have to Love the increase in Street Parties this Carnival or all leave the cities and take country vacations! Lol.. Seriously? Nice, fun, caring people and FINALLY catching up to be the fastest growing South-American Economy. with all the natural resources this shouldn't have taken so long!
I wouldn't want to live in Brazil--their class warfare is alarming, as is their prison system. Of course the well to do Brazilians are also narcissistic. They don't care about children, which is why they have so many street urchins and kids in jail, where it's brutal. Brazilians hope that the world won't see past Carnival, or beyond the beaches of Ipanema to see the streets as they really are. Even in Brasilia.
I once read that in political campaigns that the rain forest to the Brazilian people is not even a minor concern. I have also heard tha the crime rate is high, particularly against children, and foreigners. On the other hand I've never been there, and I don't want to go there. I'd much rather visit Chile, or Tierra del Fuego.
i think the same of Brazilians as i do of Americans, Germans, Frenchmen, Englishmen, or any other nationality on this earth. there are those people who are good, honest, kind people, and there are those who make human beings in general look bad, and those who fit somewhere in between. you are never able to judge a person based on where they are from, what religion they believe in or any other stereotypical evaluator, as each person is an individual and unique.
