Has anyone ventured to Brazil? It’s always been one of the places I would like to visit but the things I hear about are so mixed. The major downside people have with Brazil is the level of crime there. A well traveled Canadian I met in Europe had the look of death on his face when I asked if Brazil had been one of his stops on a trip he took to South America. His reply was “God, no!”. He then said violent crime was on the rise there and areas that were once safe for tourists have become more dangerous with criminal types beginning to target tourists. Then again a person I met that actually went to Brazil had a great time. Then again, however, a guy I know that was born in Brazil said he wouldn’t go there unless he was visiting family.
So, EuroTrippers I’d like to offer a penny for your thoughts on Brazil.
