Summary
Nowadays Brazilians are proud not only about soccer and samba, but also for having one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Over two weeks, our hosts travel on the only passenger line in Brazil from the coastal city of Vitoria and the megacity Belo Horizonte in the interior, and along the way they get insight into the Brazilian mindset from fellow travelers. Brazilians like embracing each other - in contrast to Europeans and Americans. For them this is a necessity of life, says Leticia, an aspiring journalist. Sandra is convinced that Brazil is the greatest country in the world, she says, "Everyone who left this country wants nothing more than to return to Brazil. Leaving for a better future was an illusion, and when they return, they will love Brazil even more.
