Brazil in the spotlight

On the occasion of the upcoming FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014, Encuentros Bazar organized a special event, Wednesday, May 28th at the Embassy of Brazil in Madrid.  This was second event we attended organized by Encuentros Bazar. The first was last month with designer Guillermina Baeza which we wrote about in an earlier post. 

The twentieth edition of the World Cup, will take place between June 12 and July 13, and will be the second time this sporting event takes place in Brazil.

We had the opportunity to talk with Ambassador Paulo César de Oliveira Campos about sports, tourism, fashion, and gastronomy, and his love for Madrid.

The ambassador wanted to emphasize that visitors to Brazil for the World Cup should be aware that Brazil is much more than Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Less well known places such as Praia de Pipa, Chapada Diamantina, San Miguel, Jericocoara and Trancoso are well worth a visit.

The ambassador also highlighted the quality of life in Madrid, the fact Madrid is well connected, with great transport and infrastructure, parks and gardens, cultural and leisure offerings, excellent restaurants, making Madrid a very pleasant city in which to live.

The Brazilian Embassy is located in a classical town house in the elegant Almagro district of Madrid, and retains antique furniture.
