A cidade de Nova Petrópolis é um pedacinho da Alemanha na Serra Gaúcha. O início da colonização de Nova Petrópolis foi em 07 de Setembro de 1858 por imigrantes alemães vindos da Pomerânea, Saxônia, Boêmia e Hunsrück, dos quais, descendem as maiorias dos seus habitantes.

A ótima localização da colônia e suas belas paisagens naturais levaram seus fundadores a denominá-la Nova Petrópolis, como uma homenagem à Sua Majestade Imperial D. Pedro II e uma analogia à "Cidade Imperial de Petrópolis", no Rio de Janeiro, onde a corte passava os meses de verão.

Nova Petrópolis se integra em todos os roteiros turísticos da Serra Gaúcha, um lugar tranqüilo, emoldurado por belezas naturais e culturais. Visitar esta bela cidade e conhecer suas potencialidades é sempre uma agradável surpresa. Distancia de Canela: 42 km.

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.
