I was lucky enough to spend NYE 2016 in Brazil with my best friend Kevin. We did the touristy typicals, met some really interesting random people (Cascius), learned about corruption in Brazil, lived in a Favella called Babilonia, and found some trouble. It was an awesome trip!
Brazil is spectacular and 3 weeks is not nearly enough. I plan to go back for Carneval 2018!
Here are some photos:
