Ilha do Mel - Entrance/Exit Deck
Ilha do Mel (Honey Island) has a curvaceous outline, pristine beaches, diverse ecosystems, and no cars at all. Access to the island, one of the top destinations in Southern Brazil, is made by boat only and controlled by an environmental institute; no more than 5,000 people can visit at a time. The island has never been busier since its first inhabitants left behind traces of their existence in local sambaquis, or shell mounds, over 5,000 years ago. Ilha do Mel draws plenty of young travelers during the summer and the Brazilian version of spring break, in October. However, the beaches around the villages of Encantadas, to the south, or Nova Brasília and Fortaleza, on the whale-shaped north, still offer a tranquil environment for hiking, scuba diving, boat trips and contemplation.

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.
