Rio Carnival is considered the largest in the world. See incredible samba queens and a rainbow of colour fill the streets. http://www.virginholidaysjourneys.co.uk/destination/item204405/latin-america/brazil
Place: Brazil What I learned: Brazil is located in South America. This is where Carnival is celebrated. Located in Brazil is a very, very, popular statue. The Christ the Redeemer statue. Which brings on 1,800,000 visitors a year. Why I think it's cool: I like the way they celebrate their culture. I think Carnival is a great way to bring the country together every now and then. I love the landscapes and the old buildings. Also, the rainforests are very beautiful.
