What's Brazil?

If I was asked what's Brazil like, there would be lots of things to tell. One of the biggest countries in the world, where you'll find the biggest rainforest, some of the best food, big cities, wonderful beaches, nice islands, dry places, hot and cold cities, nice people... a little world in just one country...

But a nice thing is to see Brazil from other people's eyes. They have a sharp eye to notice things we may not care... (so usual) The French guy Olivier Teboul, 29, released a blog to tell his stories and adventures in Brazil. He's a computer engineer, works at Google's office in Belo Horizonte and lives in Brazil for about one and a half year. His first post was mainly to list his 65 unique impressions that called his attention while in Brazil. Olivier lists some normal things to Brazilians, but a bit weird and strange (and funny) for him. Some things are related to his surroudings, not a rule. This is the why he starts saying: “Aqui são umas das minhas observações, às vezes um pouco exageradas, sobre o Brasil. Nada sério.”

It's also a good oportunity to practice your Portuguese reading (there are a few mistakes, btw) Enjoy your reading and experience:

El arte de escribir es algo inagotable, morimos las personas pero los cinceles, plumas, lápices y teclas. No morirán hasta que el último de nosotros cierre la puerta por fuera y se acabe todo esto.
