Geodesic Center of South America
Brazil

Cuiabá is under the Geodesic Center of South America, at coordinates 15 ° 35'56 ", 80 south latitude and 56 ° 06'05", longitude 55 west. Situated on the current square Pascoal Moreira Cabral, was determined by Rondon in 1909, the correct point in the geodetic center has been challenged, but calculations made by the Brazilian Army confirmed the coordinates calculated by Rondon March. The square was known as Campo d'Ourique, where slaves punished and were carried out cavalhadas and bullfights. Starting in 1972, works in local City Council Cuiabá. http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centro_Geod%C3%A9sico_da_Am%C3%A9rica_do_Sul

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.
