Brazil is a country in South America that stretches from the Amazon River in the north to vineyards and huge Iguazu Falls in the south. The city of Rio de Janeiro, symbolized by the 38-meter-high statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Mount Corcovado, is famous for its lively beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, as well as a large-scale carnival, where visitors can admire brightly decorated moving platforms and samba dancers in outrageous costumes.
