Amazon Rainforest

Moving to Brazil?

My evening reading material has shifted from my beautifully bare passport to the thickness of my Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide. So far, I’ve only finished the Rio de Janeiro City section – which barely made a dent in this behemoth of a book – and only teased myself with the first few pages of The Amazon.
First impressions: I have yet to visit Brazil, but I already don’t want to leave.

Thanks to LP, I went to bed last night seriously considering the pros and cons of a permanent relocation.

Pros: Beaches, mountains, seemingly non-stop parties all over the country (especially around Carnaval), a rainforest so vast and mysterious it just blows my mind thinking about, and new things to do and discover every day in such a small part of the world.

Cons: … let me get back to you on that one.
