    I lived in Brazil for 2 years. One of the most amazing experiences of my life. They are such a warm and welcoming culture. Also, the food. Seriously, they have the most amazing food. Brazilian festivals are always such fun with the amazing music and people. If you get a chance to attend one, I can’t recommend it enough.
