Brazil thread
 
I think it's time to start a thread about my beautiful country, Brazil. :D

The idea is to create a place for:
  • Brazilian ADV riders check-in
  • Travelers tell us that they are here
  • Future visitors ask questions
So, lets go! :thumb

Robson Jaborá/SC 09-10-2010 02:06 PM

Look at the 1st BAAM we did... :kumbaya

I will be visiting your country on my way north later this year or early next year. I think Brazil will be the highlight of my trip through the Americas. :thumb

Make sure to include Brasilia in your route, so that we can have a beer or two! :thumb
:beer



Note: Brasilia is the capital city of Brazil. Not Rio de Janeiro :deal

I will just chime in to say that Brazilian riders are the friendliest, most supportive, most helpful and hospitable in all the Americas. The only drawback appears to be the distinct danger that once you start accepting invitations your forward progress will diminish to the point where you'll outstay your visa, which could be a real problem.

Info about the roads
 
For those travelling through Brazil, there is a website of DNIT - Departamento Nacional de Infra-estrutura de Transporte very useful.
It tells the asphalt condition of the federal roads :thumb

John

John!
January to June, is the rainy season in Amazon Forest, then, the roads at this places stay very very bad.
Because of this you see red dots.
The others are better, you can ride without great problems.
Keep in touch,

Throttlemeister 09-21-2010 05:54 PM

Thanks Robson for the translation, looks like I should go to Brasil after Colombia before the rainy season starts. I just need to get cracking on the Rosetta Stone language skills to at least get some Spanish going.

I really want to ride BR 319

Robson Jaborá/SC 09-21-2010 06:59 PM

No problem John!
These roads are a dream for Brazilians too... :lol3
OK!
I'm in south Brazil, at 450 km from Curitiba, Florianópolis and Porto Alegre.
