Yo, Graham! what's up?
I am Andrés, a student of the 2nde1 as well, so I think I can tell you something about Brazil... Many people say that this country is a bad place to live. Well , I don't think so and I like here a lot. There are beautiful places like Rio de Janeiro, the Northwest part, the Amazon, etc... It is kind of hard to know all of these places. I live in São Paulo ,a city that does not offer too many beautiful places but I like it. I went a lot to Rio de Janeiro and once to Maceió (Northwest).
If you can visit us sometime I believe you will really like it !!
I have to go, so see ya...
