Subject: Re: Escape from winter
Sue -

It was good advice Candice gave you about coming to South America to get away from the cold winter months. Only - she forgot to mention Brazil. It is a great place to be in the summer - actually people from Uruguay, Argentina and Chile just love to come here. In the southern states spanish prevails during the summer months!!!

There are fabulous beaches, beautiful towns, great cities, music, art, theater, you name it and Brazil has it. Of course, being such a huge country things happen in different states. São Paulo and the large cities are more expensive, towns and countryside are much less. Along the seaside you have a huge choice of places from ultra luxury to small inns. If I can help with specific questions please let me know.
