Brazil is one of my absolute favorites. I was in Sao Palo for about two weeks and just loved the people, the food, the music...everything. If you like red meat this is the place for you. Try a Brazilian barbecue some time - like Rodisio's in Denver. In Brazil they eat lots of fruit as well - they even drink fruit juice with any meal. The juice is actually real juice, no corn syrup added or anything - it is usually fresh squeezed that day - or when you order it!
I went to a rodeo with a friend in the town of Cajamar just outside of Sao Palo
