These are some of the most interesting facts about Brazil that I've discovered, and also some of the most unusual!
It is really fun to look around online, and also to talk with my Brazilian friends, to learn more about what is most unique about Brazil.
The following lists are just a beginning, and I hope you'll join me to add to the list! Do you have additional amazing Brazil facts to share? Please let us know here!
First, we start with some basic Brazil facts. I didn't know a lot of these things!!
According to Wikipedia, as of 2010 it averages 58 people per square kilometer. Population density has almost doubled in recent times but it still quite low, which is because most Brazilians live in cities, and there are vast expanses of the country that are unpopulated.
Now when I lived there in the 1990's, there was a lot more poverty in Brazil and yet my experience of the Brazilian spirit was of an optimistic and generous people. At that time, I remember runaway inflation, and the currency regularly changing, which was very confusing for me. It's difficult enough to learn how to count in Portugues, and even harder when the numbers and the amounts keep changing!
I am so glad that the economic situation is improving for Brazil now.
Ah, the Brazilian rainforest is truly a miraculous creation. What an amazing experience to be there, and to feel the sheer magnitude and beauty of Mother Nature. It's an experience I'll never forget, and hope to have again soon!
My ancestors are from England, Scotland and Europe, and my family is rather quiet, somewhat uncomfortable showing emotion, and rather reserved.
It was so refreshing for me to enjoy the open hearted, optimistic and exuberant Brazilian culture. Being there helped me to "loosen up" and learn to "go with the flow" a little more!Many of the interesting facts about Brazil that I learn remind me of this.
These are the kinds of Brazil facts you may not hear very often, if at all, unless you dig a little deeper into what is happening there.
