Chapada dos Veadeiros - Veadeiros Tablelands

http://www.pbase.com/marciocabral/chapidous

Located in the oldest geological part of the continent, the Araí plate, formed 1.8 billion years ago, Chapada dos Veadeiros (Veadeiros tableland) is the most luminous point seen from the Earth's orbit, according to NASA. The Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park in Goiás State was created in 1961. It is situated at varying altitudes between 1,300 and 1,500 mt (4265 and 4921ft), which act as watersheds of the Maranhão and Paraná river basins. Of the existing fauna, the lobo-guará, deer, rhea, king vulture and various species of sparrow hawk are worthy of noting.

Being an area of incomparable beauty, Chapada dos Veadeiros is interesting to visit both in the dry season and the rainy one. Because of the amazing energy present in the region, it attracts people interested in mysticism and ecotourism. It is also famous for its waterfalls, hiking trails and unforgettable landscape. Here, nature remains untouched by civilization, thanks to IBAMA, environmental institutions, the local community and the local public administration.

    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.
