Sao Luis - Emerging Capital
"The blend of life ... even more so."
It can be said that Brasil is a whole is a blend of cultures: African, Indigenous, Portuguese (Arabic and Asiatic via the Portuguese), etc. However, I found the capital of Sao Luis especially enchanting for its blend of Nordeste (Northeast) culture with a hint of Amaz?nia and French thrown in. The city has a magical feel to it reminescent fo Ouro Preto or the older parts of Rio - a joy to visit.
