In episode 21, Chuck talks with his cousins Alan and Adriana Kurtzweg about Brazil! There’s more to the largest country in South America as well as Latin America than beaches and Carnival. The capital is Brasília, not Rio de Janeiro as some silly, scary movie might have us believe. Alan talks about the futuristic architecture of Brasília. Adriana is from the state of Rio Grande do Sul where Fogo de Chão was founded! We talk about Brazil’s use of hydroelectric power and ethanol. And, of course, we talk about Snake Island!
