Brazil is a country of the future...I was there when Lulu came to power, at his inauguration the Rolls Royce that was ferrying him to his acceptance speech broke down. It was raining too in Brasilia on that day.
My batman had a father who had worked for the local government in Rio. He told me the municipal offices were completely empty by Friday afternoon as everyone finished early, he said that it was full of good looking ladies who were sleeping through all the top management, all very stunning and all available if you were on the right salary. Anyway, his father had recently retired and as part of his pension, he and another retiree had been given the budget of a town fire brigade to look after. What they didn't spend on fire engines, fireman and hoses was theirs to keep and fund their retirement to the style they had become accustomed to.
But in there, lies it's strange charm and bewildering optimism in face of vast crookedness and violence. It's in a constant state of the good times are just about to arrive and so they dance on in the sand and dirt under a 40 Watt lightbulb in the hope that next year the disco lights will arrive.Brazil is a country of the future...
...And always will be.
It is indeed a dystopia, but you can have a glorious fantasy of non-stop sex for the first 18 months before the dark reality weighs in all around you. The country itself is filled to the brim of natural beauty though, it's a dystopia of some lovely eye candy. And that too seems to be the essence of Brazil, scratch away at the surface and the beauty gives way to despair with gnarled twisted deals, double crosses and layers upon layers of intrigue with each one more indiscernible than the other.In a really ugly dystopian future you may be correct, that country is so fucked up.
And Brazil has the best marketed apartheid in the world. Even the victims of it, don't see it.Olo. Latin America is the only place where being white is a privilege.
I wouldn't say dangerous, unless you turn up to La Bombonera dressed in River Plate gear... but it looks like nothing has been invested in the city for at least 20 years.is BA dangerous? i've always heard good things about that city.
As prince nez says, just don't get caught in a Boca Juniors - River Plate brawl and you should be ok.is BA dangerous? i've always heard good things about that city.
FTFY.Liveleak disagrees wholeheartedly with the sentiment here about "improvements" in the USA. I could post 50 disturbing videos here a week just from that one site. Just last week there were 4 or 5 vids of black people getting shot, a sign of a very disturbed society.
Are you telling me that all the criminal gangs were just swept under the rug and never got back out? The amount of poverty is immense, as well as the levels of criminality. They might have tamped it down for a few weeks but anyone that thinks there is some long term trend of improvement is fooling themselves.
They are a population that cannot govern themselves, and would have been better if the British had stayed to run the show, not that they are perfect stewards.
Considering how a lot of people in the US respond to it with "uh huh," "you got it," and "yup," I might soon drop it altogether like the Brazilians as well.Something that use to really bug and annoy me at first, is that Brazilians don't say "Thank You" in their normal day to day interactions.
