Brazil is a country with a lot of passion. It is famous for football, the Rio Carnival, and Mount Corcovado. Football quickly became a passion for Brazilians. Over 10,000 Brazilians play professionally all over the world.

Carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil and has become an event of huge proportions. Rhythm, participation, and costumes vary from one region of Brazil to another. In the southeastern city of Rio de Janeiro, huge organized parades are led by samba schools. The country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, day and night, mainly in coastal cities. The consumption of beer accounts for 80% of annual consumption and tourism receives 70% of annual visitors.

The 125-foot statue of Christ the Redeemer with outstretched arms overlooks Rio de Janeiro from atop Mt. Corcovado.
