Winter in Brazil is the opposite of the northern hemisphere and lasts from May to September.
In northern Brazil the weather remains positively tropical with days on average between mid-20 and 30 degrees. In Rio de Janeiro, winter is like summer in Northern Europe and fluctuates between 14 and 25 degrees.
Thanks to the humidity, the evenings can be surprisingly cool there. So be sure to pack a jacket. There are also more cloudy and rainy days in winter in Rio, but also lots of blue skies and sunny days. Winter is best for hiking and sightseeing in Rio, thanks to the cooler temperatures and lack of haze, which offers endless views.
If you are going to the Pantanal, the largest tropical wetland in the world, the dry season between May and September is the best time to travel. If you are an avid bird watcher, travel between July and September, when the water level has receded and the grass is visible over the marshes, providing perfect resting places for a wide variety of bird species.
In the period from June to August, the chances of spotting a jaguar in the Pantanal are greatest.
In Central Europe we use a time zone called CET (Central European Time). UTC (Universal Time Coordinated, also GMT = Greenwich Mean Time) is about one hour ahead. In Brazil we are usually a few hours ahead of Europe.
There are 5 different time zones, some of which have been switched to daylight saving time. Here, from the third Sunday in February to the third Sunday in October.
Portuguese is the official language as well as the most widely spoken language in Brazil.
With around 204 million speakers, Brazil is by far the most populous Portuguese-speaking country in the world, followed by Angola and Mozambique with 20 million and 14 million speakers, respectively.
The indigenous languages of Brazil are older than the European colonization. Many of these languages, including Ticuna, Kaingang, and Kaiwá Guarani, have survived over the years and are still used today.
Brazilian cuisine is very different from region to region, but fresh meat and fish play an important role in the diet. Root vegetables like cassava and yam, as well as fruits like mango, papaya, guava, passion fruit and pineapple are some of the local ingredients used in cooking.
Cassava, or manioc, or yuca as it is also known, is probably the most important food in all of Brazil and is used in the preparation of many dishes. It is a starchy tuber that is an important source of carbohydrates and comes in both sweet and bitter varieties.
It is often made into flour and then used in cakes, breads, and cookies. Farofa is a popular side dish made from cassava / manioc flour. The flour is pretty bland on its own, so Brazilians usually fry onions in plenty of butter, possibly adding bacon and parsley as well, before adding the cassava flour and serving it alongside meat, rice and beans. If you get the chance, try it !!
Brazil is a melting pot of indigenous American, Portuguese, African, and other cultures from around the world.
