In 2002, the parish priest Fr Joseph Remídio Bohn led the church works, electrical installations and sound, plus the floor, refurbished and restored the paintings and decorations inside, and the temple reopened on October 7, 2003, when the Archbishop Archbishop Grings Dadeus granted the title of the church sanctuary. Aside from its historical importance from the beginning, the Church of the Rosary has an intense life of its own and still plays an important role in the religious life of the city, being the starting point for the traditional procession of Our Lady of Navigators, which brings together thousands of people every year. (Wikipedia) Em 2002, o pároco Pe. Remídio José Bohn liderou as obras da igreja; as instalações elétricas e sonoras, mais o piso, foram reformados, e restauradas as pinturas e decorações internas, sendo o templo reinaugurado em 7 de outubro de 2003, quando o Arcebispo Metropolitano Dom Dadeus Grings concedeu à igreja o título de Santuário. À parte sua importância histórica desde a origem, a Igreja do Rosário tem uma intensa vida própria e ainda desempenha um papel importante na vida religiosa da cidade, sendo o ponto de partida para a tradicional procissão de Nossa Senhora de Navegantes, que reúne milhares de pessoas todos os anos.(Wikipédia)

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.
