Say Brazil and you say: Ronaldo, Brazilian wax, carnival, caipirinha's, meat and much more. Brazil is one of the emerging countries. Take Rio de Janeiro for instance, the most famous Brazilian city in the world. Besides the major beaches like Copacabana Beach and Ipanema Beach, there are other fantastic attractions. For example the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer, on the 710 meter high Corcovado. A must-see! Rio has hosted the WC football in 2014 and will be the home port of the Olympic Games in 2016. Rio is definately worth a visit! The weather is pleasant all year long.
