Brazil, the biggest country in South America, is very much a country of contrasts. When someone hears the word Brazil, one thinks of the great Amazon forest, fantastic beaches, great soccer players, Carnival time, etc. Brazil has much more to offer – warm people, fantastic music, great cities, technological developments, a wide range of weather patterns, an awesome mixture of cultures and races – and much more! It is appropriate that the 2014 Soccer World Cup will be held in Brazil,as the game is played to a samba beat that runs through the heart and soul of the entire country.
