History: Write a brief history about your destination.
The first Europeans settlers to come to Brazil were the Portuguese, led by Pedro Cabral. The Portuguese found around seven million native Indians. Most tribes were traveling from place to place, with only limited farming and temporary places to live. Brazil has the sixth largest population in the world- about 148 million people- which has doubled in the past 30 years! Because of its size, there are only 15 people per sq. km. The immigrant Portuguese language was greatly influenced by the numerous Indian and African people they encountered, but it remains the most commonly spoken language in Brazil today.
Culture: Write about your destinations culture.
The culture of Brazil presents a very diverse nature showing that an ethnic and cultural mixing occurred in the colonial period including, Native Brazilians, Portuguese and Africans.
