But I would like to live in Northern countries because I hate heath.

Or in the Southern hemisphere New-Zealand, Patagonia, Falkland Islands, Southern Argentina, Tasmania.

God bless the cold !
Patagonia, Southern Argentina, Falkland Islands... lots of redundancy here.

The same happens to me.

I would really like to visit some cities like Cartagena de Indias, Curitiba, Oaxaca and many more.

Sorry for my ignorance but I thought Patagonia was only in Southern Chile.

The Falkland Island? Why redundant?

Not only. I'm also in favour of a handover.

But are these Islands also part of Patagonia, for you?

Yes, most people are probably sold on this touristy image of Brazil and that's what stands out in their minds.
And as for the carvival, people probably don't think that the gorgeous dancers are mostly from the poorer levels of society and that once the show is over, most of them go back to their everyday lives in the favellas and that isn't much of a glamurous life.
(as my favourite Brazilian once explained to me )

I always thought life in Brazil seams pretty rough, what with the rampant corruption and the mindset that is still a little hung-up on the post-colonial era and it's chaotic values and alpha male struggles and mindset.
Overall, I just think the image of Brazil is being successfully spun by the media but it's as far from a paradise as it can be.

Brazil isn't thaaat bad. It's not absolute chaos, but very close to it sometimes. I feel there's a problem where there's a space where law isn't present. That space is usually filled by corruption and rarely by common sense.

I feel I live among people that even when they have money, they can't grasp education and politeness.

How could law not be present? Legislation exists everywhere.
Did you mean execution?
