This is my first trip to Brazil so I'm really excited and gathered some
facts. Here are some interesting tidbits:

  • Fifth largest country by geographical area (5.7% of total
    land, approx 88% of USA)
  • Fifth most populous country (2.81 % of world population,
    approx 61% of USA)
  • Consists of 26 states and one Federal District, href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brasilia">Brasilia
    is the capital city, href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sao_Paulo_%28state%29">Sao
    Paulo is the economic center
  • Equator line passes through the northern tip of Brazl in
    the state of Amapa
    (my first trip to Southern Hemisphere)
  • Has 60% of the biggest and the richest tropical rainforest
    - Amazon
    Rainforest
    (most href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_birds_of_Brazil">diverse
    population of birds)
  • Brazilian Football (known as Soccer in USA) has produced
    some of finest players - Pele,
    Three R's ( href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronaldo_Lu%C3%ADs_Naz%C3%A1rio_de_Lima">Ronaldo,
    Rivaldo
    & Ronaldinho).
    And they have won FIFA
