Brazil is clearly the sexiest country in the world. One can feel sex even in transit at the airport. The people here have both the rhythm and the looks. There is no way you won't be charmed here, despite the extent of inequalities which also make the place relatively dangerous if you don't keep your wits about you. Rio de Janeiro is great, especially if you stay clear of the tourist traps; do explore the centre. The cities in the south that I have been to are just terrific too. And the people are relaxed, helpful and generally just GREAT. A country I will be going to many times I hope.
Highlight: Feijoada - a dish to be savoured during a long afternoon. And Iguassu Falls - you haven't felt freedom until you get there.
