Exploring the beaches and cities of Brazil was absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend the adventure. For my preparation, I learned a few Portuguese words and phrases and read several books on traveling to this amazing country. When I stepped out of the resort I discovered my studies had fallen woefully short for the reality I found.
Brazil for me was more like visiting another planet, not country. It was extremely beautiful, exciting, fun, surprising and full of friendly people, but I also found it strange, complicated, dirty and even a little scary at times. Most fears could have been avoided if I had only known a little more.
