Brazil: A Photo Journey

Brazil, the world’s fifth largest nation and the largest in South America, is a wonder of nature. It would take months, if not years, to fully explore its breathtaking landscapes and rich art and culture.

I’ve been to Brazil a few times, and I’ve only just begun to scratch the surface.There are still far away places on my bucket list like the Pantanal and Lençóis Maranhenses that I can only dream about for now.
