A praia do Flamengo é a praia que se estende por grande parte do parque Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes (o aterro do Flamengo), no Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. A origem do nome da praia vem da primeira invasão neerlandesa à cidade em 1599. Como o desembarque neerlandês ocorreu na praia, que era anteriormente chamada praia do Sapateiro, ela passou a ser chamada praia do Flamengo[1]. Oficialmente, flamengo designa o natural da região belga de Flandres. Porém, na época, esse era o termo pelo qual se designavam todos os falantes de língua neerlandesa, o que abrangia tanto os naturais dos atuais Países Baixos (os neerlandeses) quanto os naturais de Flandres (os flamengos)[2]. É uma praia de águas tranquilas, por se situar dentro da baía de Guanabara. http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Praia_do_Flamengo

This is an overview of Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.

Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.

Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.

Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.

Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.

Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.

This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.
