As a Brazilian Woman I must inform you, since you may not be aware, that we have brains besides breasts. I find your magazine informative and have given subscriptions to my American friends, yet I feel incensed with your continuous coverage and pictures of nude and semi-nude women.
Since you have women subscribers you should give us equal opportunity and publish pictures of nude men. Why not? If hanging boobs give your male readers a bang, hanging penises would catch the female eyes, don't you agree? There are thousands of women in Brazil worth writing about and they are not those who drop their clothing to get attention. There is no reason whatsoever to continue honoring those bimbos when there is so much to write about the real Brazilian women and our culture.
Having recently visited Brazil, I was shocked and delighted to see, among other things, a lack of a generation gap that is all too prevalent in American culture. Parents, grandparents, children and young adults do things together in ways you just can't see in this country anymore. Also, the sexes seem to get along with far less conflict than here in the US. Maybe the gender gap is less there? I don't really know but I think this is a good subject for future stories.
I was surfing the Net looking for anything and everything when I came across your magazine. I would love to receive it now. I lived in Brazil for a year as a foreign exchange student and I fell in love with that country. I hope to be able to return there someday soon to live there.
But since I am in college I cannot even afford to go back to visit my wonderful family and friends there. My only contact has been the mail and the occasional phone call. I live in Wisconsin and the only news I receive about Brazil is when something really major occurs. I am very excited about receiving my first issue.
I accessed your magazine on line because my little brother (11 years old) is doing a research for school in order to participate in the "Sciences Open Market" on Communications, specifically cartoons and comic strips, and the chosen title by him and his friends is "Turma da Mônica". One of the questions they have to answer is Cascão's and Cebolinha's date of birth. Thus, I wonder if you would not mind providing me this information.
I am from Brazil and I have just found Bruce Gilman's two articles on choro ("Pixinguinha Lives" and "Choro, Chorinho, Chorão") at Brazzil on line. They are very interesting and I would like to know if your magazine has published other articles on samba and choro music. I am building a WEB site about samba and choro during my free time and I am having some trouble finding information. Sure I should go to some places here in Rio, but I work all day. I don't know if you can help me, but thanks anyway.
Hi, I have been traveling to Brazil quite a lot. Brazzil is a source of great joy for me thanks to all the interesting information in the magazine. I am going to Brazil again for Carnaval in 1997. By the way, do I need a visa to enter Brazil this year? In 1995 I did not need one. I'm a Swedish citizen. Keep up the good work.
I picked up a copy of Brazzil at the Brazilian Independence Day festival here in San Francisco. I enjoyed the issue very much. I have three articles on Brazil which would do well on your publication. I am offering a brief description of each one, so that you can pick the one (or all three) that most fits the needs of your magazine. I have been published in Greensboro Review, Hayden's Ferry Review, Raven's Chronicles (a multi-cultural publication), Brooklyn Review, Michigan Quarterly Review and elsewhere.
I have been reading your publication with great interest. It is truly first rate and helps out those of us who don't speak Portuguese. There are a number of personal ads in each issue, but I haven't seen any "agencies" advertise. Do you know of any marriage or introduction agency in Brazil that specializes in introducing Brazilian women to American men? If so, please provide me with contact information.
I have been a subscriber for a couple of years, love the mag, but I need help and I don't know how to find it except by asking someone there. Right now, I am in the process of buying a house in Fortaleza. I have an attorney there (on some other stuff) and friends who are helping out, but I need to find an attorney here (or someone knowledgeable) who knows the safest way to be sure that the deposit and purchase price are secure until the documents are verified. Your attorney advertisers deal with immigration primarily. How do I find a Brazilian attorney who knows how to pull this off safely? I can be contacted at email@example.com
Thank you very much. I really enjoy you magazine. Dá pra matar saudades!
I keep letting my subscription expire. Please accept the enclosed check for $30 for the next 10 years, or however long you think it's worth.
