INTRODUCTION

Curitiba is the capital of Paraná, one of the states in southern Brazil, and is a city surrounded by mountains and beaches.  Curitiba focuses heavily on promoting sustainability through various green initiatives. This green focus can be seen throughout the city by visiting the various parks and recreation attractions, which celebrate Brazilian vegetation and the pastoral setting.
 Brazil has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, fostering a unique urban environment, yet still offers interesting ecosystems ranging from tropical rainforests (the Amazon), to mountain ranges. An important fact to remember: the official language of Brazil is Portuguese (not Spanish!).
