Brasilia

Brasilia is the current capital of Brazil created in the geographical center of Brazil and in the middle of the jungle. Very interesting project and architecture.

Amazonas

We flew to Manaus which is the regional center of Amazonas. We spend some days in the jungle learning a lot of intersting things about rainforest flora and fauna. We also got the opportunity to visit the fantastic operabuilding in Manaus which is actually a copy of the opera house in Paris.

Rio de Janeiro

Last stop in Brazil and my personal reason for the journey was Rio. Located on the slope of the mountains with fantastic view of the sea it is hard to beat by any other city I have visited. Also off course we found some music clubs with bossa and other music.
