Greetings Brazil Nuts!
Welcome to the much delayed first edition of the Brazil Nuts Blog
Although the plan was to launch in January, a hectic travel schedule taking me across four continents this first quarter of 2009 put a monkey wrench into those plans. But now, on April 1st (an auspicious date?) we’re in business.
Why Another Blog?
This blog is dedicated to all of us who in some form or fashion consider ourselves “Brazil Nuts” … that is, crazy about this wonderful country, its culture and its people. Since my first visit in 1979, I was captivated by this destination and have spent the better part of my professional and personal life engaged in discovering, promoting and of course enjoying its unique attributes. And I believe myself fortunate enough to have been granted a privileged vantage point from which to experience and understand the country, and add to the general discussion, especially for travelers to Brazil. But more on me, my background and our company in another blog.
We’ll make itinerary recommendations, restaurant, shopping and nightlife suggestions and supply reports on destinations we have visited, and hotels, pousadas, resorts and lodges we have inspected.
We’ll also tell you about the fascinating people around Brazil who can make your trip more enjoyable and meaningful Anything and everything that can help you to better plan and enjoy your Brazilian experience. From time to time we will digress and explore non-related tourism issues in Brazil, perhaps take on a more controversial topic or just plain vent.
But the idea is always to feed you Brazil Nuts with what you crave: more info and more insight on how to enjoy this great destination.
