25 Reasons That If Brazil Were A Person It Would Be The Life Of The Party

Brazil is an up and coming place. For one, it is by far the largest Portuguese speaking country in the world. It is also one of the BRICS, a group of developing countries whose economies are rapidly growing. It is the largest country in South America both geographically and demographically speaking. But there is a lot more to Brazil than just its rapidly emerging economy. It is a very diverse nation. In fact, it is one of the most diverse nations on the planet in terms of genetic variability. Combining indigenous peoples with European, African, and Asian immigration has led to a population that is extremely varied.

But perhaps just as varied as the population is the geography. Brazil is home to numerous different types of terrain, possibly the most well known of which is the Amazon River. The Amazon river cuts through the world’s largest rainforest. That rainforest is home to so much biodiversity that no other place on the planet comes even close to matching it. In short, Brazil is a very diverse country that is certainly worth visiting and taking a look around. But before your trip you should get to know the place you’re going to be visiting. So let us introduce you. This is Brazil and these are 25 reasons that if Brazil were a person it would be the life of the party (which in some cases may not be a good thing)!
