A Catedral Basílica Menor de Nossa Senhora da Luz (ou Catedral Metropolitana de Curitiba), de Curitiba, capital do estado brasileiro do Paraná, está exatamente no local onde, em 1693, foi construída a primeira Igreja Católica da cidade. A construção do templo atual ocorreu entre 1876 e 1893. Cem anos mais tarde, a 7 de junho de 1993 a Catedral foi elevada ao grau de Basílica Menor e reverencia a Nossa Senhora da Luz dos Pinhais, a santa padroeira de Curitiba.

Atualmente passa por um longo processo de restauração, no interior e no exterior, com doações de fiéis e da Prefeitura Municipal de Curitiba. O término das obras de restauração na Catedral está previsto para dezembro de 2012.

A catedral foi construída em estilo neogótico (ou gótico romano), inspirado na Catedral da Sé de Barcelona, na Espanha e em sua abóboda, as pinturas existentes são dos artistas italianos Carlos e Anacleto Garbaccio, com a autoria do projeto atribuído a Afonse Conde Du Plat, arquiteto francês.

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.
