I dont wanna write about a brasilian carnavals, scissors players and other. Many things were written by other people. And picture about Brasil became very sweet. I wanna add: there is a big violency in Braisl, a lot of robbers, dangerous uptowns and districts in big cities.
When I was a child brasiliab series were popular in Russia and I know a lot of old tv-series and know a lot of actors. Also I can mention a brasilian coffee.
