The cities where I lived, are marked.

Brazil is a very large country, almost 35 times larger than Great Britain or
even larger than the USA without Alasca. Many people think that Brazil is only any country
in Latin America. This is not correct. Brazil is the country of Latin America, considering its size,
number of inhabitants and economical power. It is one of the most important contries in the world.
