Florianopolis - The bay
Brazil
Bay at the South end of the Santa Catarina island where we were lucky to spot 2 whales, the mother and baby whale. Santa Catarina Island (Portuguese: Ilha de Santa Catarina) is an island in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. It is located on the south coast of Brazil between the south 27° latitude and west 48° longitude. The island is approximately 54 km long (North-South) and 18 km wide (East-West) at its widest point in the north of the island, with a total area of 424.4 km², It is the site of the state capital Florianópolis as well as numerous beach resorts, such as Jurerê Intenacional, Santinho, Canasvieiras and Cachoeira do Bom Jesus. It is connected to the mainland by three bridges, though one of them (Hercilio Luz Bridge) has been closed since 1991. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Catarina_(island)

More About 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.Text by Steve Smith.
