About some brazilian traditions

Brazil has been the world’s largest exporter of coffee for more than 150 years. Brazilians tend to be deeply passionate about football. Samba lies at the soul of Brazilian music, representing the country unlike any other genre.

Nearly two-thirds of the rainforest is located in Brazil and in cities like Manaus, which straddles the border of the forest, the Amazon plays an important role in tourism and supply.

Tours of Brazil’s shanty towns, or “favelas”, have become popular tourist attractions in recent years. Rio de Janeiro, as well as other cities, do have favelas. The actual percentage of the population that lives in favelas is 6%.
