Visit the beautiful country where my cousin Sandro Brotherhood lives with his wife Cris and their daughters Stephane and Danielle.

LISTEN to Senado-FM, from Brasilia!
This is the official radio station of the Brazilian government in Brasilia, so you'll hear live debate from the Senate floor (in Portuguese, of course) during the hours when the Senate is in session. The rest of the time, though, you'll hear absolutely classic Brazilian music, free of commercials. Highly recommended. The best times to tune in are morning and later in the evening.
You must have the FREE RealAudio player installed on your system.
