Wonderland in Brazil

Christ The Redeemer
I've never been to Brazil, but I see it from the internet. I think that Brazil has many interesting places to visit such as Rio De Janeiro city, Iguacu, Sugarloaf Mountain, and Copa Cabana Beach.
Brazil is the largest and the most popular country in South America. The country is the fifth largest in the world. The Amazon River in Brazil is the widest river and second longest in the world. Brazilians have a fun habit, most amiable, and hospitality for foreigners. Brazil has activities and attractions to visit.
Rio De Janeiro, or "Rio" for short, was built at the mouth of Guanabara along the coast to Corcovado Mountain which is the symbol of the city of Rio. There is a large statue of Jesus towering atop called "Christ the Redeemer,” 38 meters high, which has the meaning given to the Christ the Redeemer in Rio. From this point you can see a beautiful view of all of the city. I hope that someday I would like to take a photo with him and see the beautiful view of Rio De Janeiro city.
The Brazilian Carnival is the ultimate exhibition of fancy light-colored ensembles. This is an old tradition. A fun mix of people attending a fancy dress parade at various international festivals, Carnival will be held around February or March of each year. I think the Brazilian Carnival is a very interesting fancy thing to see.
I know Brazil has a famous football team, but I don't like football. So I'd like to visit natural places in Brazil which has many natural places for sightseeing. Iguacu is the largest waterfall in the world and is very picturesque. Located at the junction on the border between Brazil & Argentina, the name Iguacu is translated as "Great waters" in the language of the native Indians.
Sugarloaf Mountain, at a height of over 1,400 meters, is located on the tip of the Cape estuary in Bara. Looking down the beach, we can see a beautiful beach whose name is Copa Cabana. Copa Cabana beach is 4 kilometers long and has a beach style walk. Portuguese tiles are shaped like waves in the sea. In addition, the setting is spectacular with mountains of high complexity.
The final place I recommend to visit, because this place is a wonderland, is named Vale de Lua or the "valley of the moon." Vale de Lua is a plateau that looks like the surface of the moon and is more than 1.8 billion years old. As part of the National Park Chapada dos Veadeiros, in 2001 the organization UNESCO declared the Valley of the Moon to be a World Heritage Site.
