7000 km of tropical beaches, 80% of its 200.000.000 citzens living in cities, 79% of the territory covered by tropical florests, giant waterfalls, amazing geography, people talking portuguese, mixed people - from Nigerians (yoruba people) + (Bantos - people from Angola) + Europeans (Portuguese, Italians, Germans, mainly); lots of Japanese people; Middle east people (mostly lebanese); and thousands of different indigenous groups. At least half of the population is mixed (but in my opinion, 90% of brazilians are mixed, they just don't admit it). The tropical beaches: they are amazing, better than any other country. Imagine that Hawaii was as large as United States. Brazilian cities have lots of buildings (much more than in USA). The brazilian culture is very rich too: Capoeira, Samba, Surf, Caipirinha, churrasco (brazilian barbecue); Macumba (brazilian voodoo). The east of the country is more African, the south is more european, and the north is more indigenous. The capital of Brazil is Brasilia (not Rio de Janeiro). And its largest city is Sao Paulo (it has thousands and thousands of buildings and a very good subway). Don't be guided by stupid stereotypes.
