Description:   Brazil is in South America and due to its vast size takes up just under half of the whole continent. Home to the Amazon rain forests and traditional Indian tribes whose way of life has little changed in millennia. It is the only South American country whose language is Portuguese the rest being Spanish ( with the exceptions of French Guiana, Suriname and Guyana).It has the serenity of parts of the Amazon coupled with the hustle and bustle of Rio De Janeiro. Brazil is a country as rich in its diversity as its size.
