The Carnival of Brazil is a great festival held forty-six days before Easter. Rhythm, and costumes vary from one region of Brazil to another. In the southeastern city of Rio, huge organized parades are led by samba schools. Carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil. Except the industries, malls and the carnival related workers, the country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, day and night, mainly in coastal cities.

Language
Many different types of houses can be found in cities of Brazil. Families who are middle or upper class live in either houses or high rise apartments. many of the lower class families live in houses that are similar to the ones in rural areas
This is a middle or upper class house
This is a lower class house
The top three famous attractions are Christ the Redeemer, the Amazon river, and the Rio Carnaval
Housing
This is Christ of Redeemer
This is the Amazon river
This is the Rio Carnaval
Two of the top famous people in Brazil are Pele and Paulo Coelho
Pele is the best soccer player in the world. In his entire career in soccer he made 1281 goals and has played 1363 games
Paulo is a famous writer. He has written 150 million books that have been translated into 67 different languages.
The thing I think is most interesting is that through his entire career of soccer Pele made 1281 goals and that the amazon is the second largest rainforest in the world
I would recommend Brazil as a travel destination because there are a lot of nice places to visit in Brazil like Rio and in Rio the Christ of Redeemer and beaches plus the food there is quiet nice . There are also some tours of the Amazon that would be nice to go on
Clothing
Samba is the best known form of brazilian music, especially because of the Carnaval.
The modern clothing in Brazil is light because of the hot climate and you would usually wear shorts/skirts and a tank top. In the evening if you go to a restaurant you would usually wear fancy clothing.
For women traditional clothing is a dress named Baiana it is a very long dress with a beaded necklace and a long shawl

For men traditional clothing is Bombacha which is baggy pants made of cotton and a white t-shirt with a poncho on top a wide straw hat and leather boots
I got my information from Google, Google images, Wikipedia, and eHow.com
