Curitiba, an example to the world Brazil is a fantastic country, in an amazing part of the world.

Presidents Lula and Cardoso This World Cup definitely feels very different to its predecessors. One sign of this is the streets of Rio de Janeiro.

Machado de AssisNow and then, man, nature, fate, and free will conspire to produce an unlikely genius in an unlikely place. If Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis had written the story of his own life, he may well have built the plot around such a conspiracy - a society in transition, nature besieged by science, dumb luck introducing a poor boy to language and literature, and self-generated gumption thrusting him up the rungs of the social ladder.
