These are some pictures from Bangkok where I was from. Its probably notorious for the worst traffic man has ever seen. It usually takes me around 1 hour to go 20 km to visit my friend in downtown. However, during this month the majority of the cars here are gone probably due to the flood which made the traffic significantly better.

hi guys,there are pictures form where i have borne and where i actually live ,Porto Alegre.

this is capital of the southern state of Brazil,Rio Grande Do Sul,a little bit different from the rest of Brazilian states,cuz we are more similar in some way,to our brothers from Uruguay and Argentina,at least traditionally and historically.we are actually,called "Gauchos",and we like churrasco,big pieces of meat roasted on charcoal fire (the best meat on earth),and drink chimarrao,a bitter hot drink made from mate grass.we use to be the most arborized city and with the highest quality of life,but,you know,as time goes by,paradoxically,corruption goes on and on,so social,economic,political,natural environment progress go down and down...musically speaking,we have big national rock and roll bands,we got our folklore preserved in our musical genres too,and a great enphasis on Yemandu Costa,a acoustic guitarist know worldwide (really,really good musician),and from a techincal brutal death metal band known as Krisiun,also popular in the world of brutal metal.

Okay I see, so with Uruguay and Argentina you were probably referencing the pampas.

yes,the pampas!we consider ourselves brazilian too,a lot,but we are a little different concerning the historical way of life,above all ,i think there is the climate,we live four different season,differently from rio de janeiro and above there,where all year is hot.we are a little more regionalist then the other brazilian states...we had already a separatist  war against the imperium!!!we are the most german and italian descendent.

ive seen a lot of canadian people around here too,i used to listen a lot well about your country,the quality of life.

"the grand execution" their last album ,had a lot of good reviews,they`ve made a hard work in those last years to gain popularity ,in the last year the accompanied nile and immolation,great band.

Interesting antberg, I see you're on the southern parallel similar to San Diego. There are many Brazilians here in Hawaii, including my good friends of German and Swedish descent from Sao Paulo. We used to have an excellent Brazilian beef restaurant here.
