A Igreja de Nosso Senhor Salvador do Mundo foi a primeira construída no Brasil. Fundada em 1540, tinha sua estrutura inicial em madeira e taipa. A partir de 1584, começou a construção da nova igreja matriz com muitas capelas ao redor. Durante a invasão holandesa, serviu como templo protestante e teve sua estrutura danificada com o incêndio ateado pelo invasor. Depois da Restauração Pernambucana, começaram os trabalhos de reconstrução, passando os atos religiosos a serem realizados na Igreja de São João. Ainda no período de reconstrução, em 1676, foi elevada à categoria de bispado de Olinda sendo inaugurada somente em 1714. A mudança da sede do governo do bispado para o Palácio da Soledade provocou um movimento no sentido de transferir a catedral para o Recife.

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.
