I didn’t think I was going to watch the Olympics this year, there was so much controversy before it started it put a bit of a dampener on it.
The Russian doping scandal, construction workers tragically killed whilst building the stadiums and the disease issue was obviously not the best of starts but as we go into the final weekend I can report I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
The excitement, heartache, joy & happiness of these talented athletes that train for 4 year for one competition provides excellent viewing.
My only disappointment has been the emptiness of some of the stadiums.
Since Brasil is firmly on the world’s minds I thought it would be appropriate to write a post outlining 5 reasons everyone should love Brasil:
1. Amazing Climate:
The country enjoys good climate and weather all year round. You will appreciate the sunny and warm climate that makes the outdoors conducive.
2. Panoramic Views:
Brasil is home to many natural and manmade features. These include mountains, the ocean, jungles, monuments, historical building and much more. Ever heard of the Christ the Redeemer statue?
Do you know that Brasil is among the fasted growing economies in the word? Due to this, the region is experiencing a boom in shopping malls like the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping centre, which is a prime example of the excellent shopping facilities available.
Brasil is home to Samba, Forro, Bossa Nova and other music genres. The country is also renowned for its many carnivals.
Due to being in the Amazon region, Brasil enjoys great biodiversity. You can go for safari walks, nature trails, birdwatching, marine expedition and much more.
