Best Blogs about Brazil

Today blogging is almost synonymous with travel culture. While in the old days, we used to scribble on small notebooks to try to remember as much as we could of our adventures, today we just have to pop into an internet cafe and we can instantly share the smallest details of our experiences with the world.
