I just returned from my vacation in Brasil, I have been there for 5 weeks as a holiday and been to different places.
I would like to share my experiences and pictures with you.
I've been to the following places:
São Paulo - SP http://SPSaoPauloSP.blogspot.com
Manaus - AM (Amazonia) http://ManausAmazonia.blogspot.com
Belém - PA (Pará) http://Belem2010.blogspot.com
Cururupu - MA (Maranhão) http://Cururupu.blogspot.com
It was a very impressive holiday, seen many different things. If you are interested or planning on going there you might want to check out some of the pictures I took. Either for reference or just for fun, maybe for a travel tip.
IE if you go to Belém you should definately visit Ilha do Mosqueiro, praia do Farol (Farol beach).
São Paulo is a huge city, interesting to see are the slumbs (favelas) but be very careful. Some places you better avoid if you are not from around there.
In Manaus most people go for a (short) jungle trip, however about everyone rips you off with the prices, the food you get, no matter how nice it looks is not 100% clean, cheap and bad quality. You'd better take something with you or you might end up very hungry.
I added my pictures to the following link:
