What is Carnival in Brazil?

Did you ever wonder how this party got started? Why do millions of people travel from all around the globe to participate in a wild week long party? I have seen firsthand why. Video 111

Tonight we celebrated Carnival along the beach at Farol da Barra in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. It was a fun, safe, family event put on by a local family. Jeanna made this little speaker truck called a Bloquinho Piriguete 3x5 and for the last 5 years has thrown her own private carnival party with friends and family.
Carnival is the biggest week long party in the world. It is an annual Brazilian festival held around February or March. Originally, Carnival started as a food festival, because it was the last time to eat lavishly before beginning Lent, the period of 40 days before Easter.
The Portuguese brought mascaraed balls from Europe and the Brazilians added their rhythms, music and dance moves. Over time musical styles, customs and culture merged and expanded. To create one of the most unique, vibrant, colorful, lively celebrations in the world. People from all over come together and fill multiple brazilian city streets with, singing, dancing, music, costumes and laughter.
Now, Carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil with millions of foreigners and Brazilians participating each year. This is our families second carnival and we can’t get enough. It is an exciting cultural experience. I love that Brazilians old and young participate with so much joy and energy. I love the spirit of Carnival and how it brings people together.

Here is a special story from Jeanna, the party host. I love her meaning of Carnival. She writes…

When I was little my family had an Escola de Samba (carnival group) in the interior of Bahia! My grandma’s house was full of friends and family in Carnival. We had a great time! My mom and other women use to make the clothes, for the party and I loved that energy,
As a fashion designer those memories give me the feeling of how to create things...
I decided to repeat that party in my house, about 5 years ago, because Carnaval has changed a lot in the past 25 years... became something so big, and full of big trucks and shows, that lost the magic of before.
Now again meeting people, dressing up and going to the streets. Simple, Colorful, Shine. A perfect excuse to meet friends, get dressed for Carnaval, enjoy the streets and be creative...
We live in the carnival land, and we should be part of it.

We moved our family of 7 from Nevada, USA to Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. We came to experience Brazilian culture, learn Portuguese and start a business.

Visit Sao Paulo - The DON'Ts of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Visiting Sao Paulo, Brazil, whether for work or play can be extremely rewarding with amazing museums and shopping, but there are a few things you should not do when you go to Sao Paulo. This video covers the Don'ts of Visiting Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Filmed in Sao Paulo State, Brazil
Copyright Mark Wolters 2017
1. Don't expect to get anywhere quickly in Sao Paulo. With so many people, cars and craziness it will take you longer than what google says it will to get anywhere.
2. Don't skip the Mercado Municipal! This Sao Paulo tradition is amazing. From amazing fruit to the best bologna or sorry Mortadella sandwich you ever ate.
3. Don't skip out on eating non-Brazilian food while in Sao Paulo. There are tons of amazing places, foods, restaurants and styles for you to enjoy!
4. Don't lose your wits. Pay attention! Sao Paulo has a reputation for crime for a reason.
5. Don't expect a beach vacation. Sao Paulo is not a Brazilian beach city, it is a cultural, shopping, museum, business hub for South America.

LIVING IN BRAZIL - PROS AND CONS

????????????????ASSISTA MEU CANAL SO EM PORTUGUES: ????????????????

LIVING IN BRAZIL - PROS AND CONS
I drew up a very small list of pros and cons of living in Brazil as a gringo. There are many more to talk about on either side, but these are starters.

Living in Brazil, for gringos, can be challenging, but is also very life enriching and a learning experience. I love Brazil and have the Brazilian map tattooed on my chest.

The Rio carnaval is the most famous, but two other Brazilian cities host huge carnaval parades other than rio de janeiro - which are São Paulo and Vitoria, Espirito Santo state, which is where I am. The parade is held in a sambodromo called Sambão do Povo, and several samba schols from the city of Vitoria and surrounding cities, like Vila Velha, Cariacica and Serra participate. Each school's parade lasts for around an hour and is an intense riot of music, colours and dancing.

Visit Brazil - Bus Travel in Brazil

When traveling around Brazil be ready for the Buses! Here are some helpful tips for Bus Travel in Brazil.
1. you can buy some tickets online, but without an official Brazilian government number you may not be able to buy tickets online.
2. There are a number of bus companies in Brazil and they serve different destinations. Make sure you look for bus companies that specifically focus on travel to where you want to go.
3. There are different levels of bus service in Brazil. The more you pay, the better the service.
4. Always have your ticket with you, they check it multiple times.
5. Keep all important stuff with you on the bus. Big backpacks go under the buy, but have a small day pack with your tickets, passport, snacks and drinks with you.
6. Bring screwtop bottles of drinks as the rides can get bumpy.
7. The buses are relatively on time, but do not push it with tight connections if you are looking to get a flight as traffic can be crazy in Brazil.

What to bring to Brazil's Ipanema Beach

Let's talk about Ipanema Beach essentials! Visitors to Rio are always asking Bromelia Rio Travel what is in a Brazilian Beach Bag. Summer or Wintertime...These are our recommendations for what you should take with you to the beach in Brazil! I will also explain to you the cultural rules for going to the beach in Rio de Janeiro. We have beach weather all year long, so going to the beach for us is like going to your local bar. We rarely miss a day.

What's in our bag:
1. Sundown 30spf Sunblock
2. 'How to be a Carioca' book
3. Havaianas Sandals
4. Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviators
5. Jan Mirini 33spf Face Sunblock
6. Cacau Lip Protector (Brasil)
7. Furterer Hair Mask
8. Sarong [check out our site shop.bromeliario.com for gorgeous Brazilian beach cover-ups]

MY FAVORITE IPANEMA BEACH SPOT: Posto 9 is the most interesting and trendy part of Ipanema. It is where the fashionistas, celebrities, gays, tourists and classic Cariocas all come together.

When visitors to Rio ask me what I recommend, the reply is always the same… go to the Beach. Ipanema beach might not have the calmest waters nor the most turquoise, but it is by far the most incredible beach I have ever been to. It is tantalizing to the senses! All you have to do is show up and the magical world of Rio will come to you. The best part is it all unfolds in a very relaxed fashion. You won’t find insistent vendors or pushy people here. The beautiful bodies, happy grandmas, sexy couples, futebol, volleyball and paddleball games, live samba music, colorful bikinis for sale, hot beach snacks, ice cold drinks, handmade toys, fragrant sunscreen and oils, will all walk by. Your options are simple: either give the thumbs up sign (meaning thank you but no) or the ‘psiu’ sound indicating that you want to participate. So here is your little instruction guide to a happy day at the beach.

A Carioca (Rio de Janeiro native) arrives at the beach early and stays all day, sometimes up to 10 hours in the summer. Look for a wet path from the sidewalk to a beach stand, this means the sand will be cooler to walk on and the owner of the beach stand ‘barraca’ is thoughtful and hopefully more honest. Walk up to the stand that feels good and rent a chair and an umbrella, which rents by the day and not the hour. Everything on the beach costs about 5-6 Reais, except a Caipirinha and an umbrella which are about 10-15 Reais. You might pay per round; however, most often the barraca keeps a tally which you pay for at the end of the day. From then on you can either order drinks from your chair or go up for prompter service if the service boys are busy flirting. Locals say the ideal time to be directly in the sun is before 11am and after 3pm. In between is excellent for long chats under the umbrella ‘guarda-sol’ or a small snooze after the morning round of ice cold beers.

A MUST: Order a Matte (iced tea with lemonade) and a bag of Globo crackers (Green is salty, Red is sweet). This is the ultimate classic Carioca tradition. The Matte vendors will be wearing orange outfits and have a large metal barrel under each arm, one with tea and one with lemonade. You choose how much of each one you would like. If you have good energy ‘boa energia’, the vendor might offer you a complimentary top up ‘chorinho’ which literally translates to a little cry. But be careful. According to Brazilians, if lime gets on your skin whilst in the sunshine, it will stain. So best to put a little lemonade in first and then fill up with tea. Remember when Brazilians feel good around you, it is their pleasure to share all that they have.

Tips for Grooming & Tanning: The average Brazilian swears that it isn’t their natural skin tone that lends itself so well to tanning. The secret to that golden tan is keeping wet the entire time on the beach. This involves the effortless and graceful dunking in between the massive waves and strong undertow or the much easier frequent runs to the salt water beach showers. You can also expedite the process by drinking carrot/beet juice daily from a ‘suco’ stand and applying layers of carrot ‘cenoura’ or urucum oil while at the beach (which you can find sold in small brown bottles alongside the sunscreen). A Brazilian woman will also bring to the beach a comb and a bottle of conditioner. She will give her hair a hydrating treatment while enjoying her ice cold beverage and catching up on that week’s gossip.

The Don'ts of Visiting Germany
1. Don't Assume German Are The Cold Stereotypes You Have Heard of Your Whole Life.
2. Don't Jaywalk, so follow the rules in Germany.
3. Don't Forget the Pfand or deposit that you may put down for beer mugs, bottles, cans and other things. You can get that money back.
4. Don't forget to bring flowers or a small gift when visiting a German's home. Also, don't wear your shoes inside their homes.
5. Don't be disrespectful at the Nazi concentration camps and memorials around the country.
6. Don't Wait: when at restaurants or bars order as soon as you can as waiters do not come through to check on tables as often as they do in other countries.
7. Don't Experiment on Driving on the Autobahn. It can be very dangerous for first time drivers.
8. Don't Expect to Shop on Sundays in Germany.
9. Don't forget to bring cash. Germans love to pay in cash and some places will only accept cash. So be ready.
10. Don't expect to see just half timbered houses in Germany. It is a thriving modern country with tons of amazing culture, architecture and technology.

Why Do Americans Always Say City & Country?

Paris, France. London, England, Chicago, Illinois, New York, New York. Ever wonder why Americans always say the City and the Country or the City and the State? Well it is because in the US many states have cities with the same name. 35 states have a town that is called Springfield (like in The Simpsons) and to avoid confusion they just add the state at the end. That was just transferred to when they talk about cities in other countries (also, There are about 20 Towns called Paris in the US). And don't forget about Canada, they have their own London as well, London, Ontario.
Hope that helps clear things up a bit. If you have any little culture question you would like us to answer in a video, please put it in the comment section below!

FLIGHTS. How to fly to Brazil, finding the best and cheap flights.

First off, I messed up in the last video. VISA processing time is completely dependent on which state you're in. In Texas for example, it was only 20 days. Also, with the application itself, you need to give them an econforimation and or an itinerary, aka proof of travel. Well, if you don't want to be locked into a flight, you can purchase the airfare, give it to them for the application process, and then refund the airfare through the airline within 24 hours. MAKE SURE IT'S WITHIN 24 HOURS OR YOU'RE STUCK WITH IT. By law you can get a refund through the airline, not necessarily through a third party booking site. Be sure to check the airlines rules, but it is a good way to not get locked into a flight if you want to change anything. One thing to keep in mind, the first arrival in Brazil must take place within 90 days from the date the visa was issued. This is a good way to make sure you have some wiggle room if you want to change your plans though.

Google flights is a great tool, remember to search 10-3 weeks before you want to travel, with 5-6 weeks out being the sweet spot, however I have seen last minute flights comparable to the sweet spot. Honestly, find airfare you're comfortable with, and purchase it then. Always book directly through the airline. Third party booking sites add too many problems if things change, on either end.

With ITA Matrix, you can search a calendar to find the cheapest flights. However, you cannot book through ITA Matrix like you can with google flights, so once you've found a flight you like, take the information and plug it into the airline. Pretty easy.


If you guys have any questions or concerns, please comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. THANKS!
