What do you know about Brazil?

I just found this really interesting video on what people know about Brazil. Sometimes I think Brazilians (including me) are kind of obsessed with how little people know about our country, but there's one guy on this video who is impressively up.

Of course no one know everything about other people's country, and I always find it very interesting to find out more about other places, so I thought you might find it interesting.

  1. Strike! I knew all the things they said in the video! Plus, I even know most of the neighbouring countries of Brasil - that's easy because all you have to do is name all south-american countries minus Chile and Ecuador :) The only three countries I always have problems with are those three at the top - I think Guayana, French-Guayana and Surinam? But I'm not quite sure. But if I got these correct, then I know all of the neighbouring countries of Brasil :)
    I hope you're doing well! What do you know about Germany?

    1. Yes, you've got all the countries correctly. Impressive, Caddi! :D
      To be honest, I don't know that much about Germany! I recognize some traditional clothes, I know you guys are famous for the great beer and philosophers... It's a good place to study laws... Your president is Angela Merkel (sorry I don't know how to spell it) and I always hear that Berlin is an amazing city, but I'm not sure about what do they have there.
      Oh, I also know that there are many forests and on small towns rabbits are very common animals.
      Is everything right?

    2. Yes, everything is (almost) right :) Most of the traditional clothes that are common outside of Germany are the ones from Bavaria. Forests make out more or less 30 % of Germany, so quite a lot.
      You spelled Angela Merkel right, but she's not our president, but our chancellor. She's far more important than the president(A guy named Gauck who's not connected with any party, a former Pastor who lived in the GDR.) though.
      I see deers as well very often on my commute to University - I guess maybe 3 times a week.
      All the best!

  2. I was very surprised that people don't know which city is the capital of Brazil! And, especially, that so many people think that Brazilians speak Spanish. So, comparing to this video, I know A LOT about your country! ;) (Except for the soccer: I don't like it!).

    1. Oh dear, it's SO usual that people have no idea which language we speak here... I also don't like soccer, despite so many people think that every Brazilian does love it.
