It not only is in a beautiful place of the Wonderful City, as also is registered in the Guinness Book as the biggest tree of floating Christmas of the world. The tree has 85 meters height, the equivalent to a building of 28 floors. The weight is of more than 500 tons. 2,8 million micron-light bulbs are used, and the 37 thousand meters of luminous hoses, that project the vitrais would be enough to more than give practically five returns at Lagoa. Ballet of waters light has daily presentation of colors and movement water, with spurts that can reach up to 20 meters of height. The estimate of the City hall of Rio de Janeiro is that at least 90 thousand people visit the Tree at Lagoa, every year.

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.
