Only in poor areas. Wealthy areas have a lot of security

haha the fact that you NEED security says it all.
Jesus every time i saw extra guards, it'd remind me "what's out there."

I'm relatively young, I'd take the risk and make my trip there with some of my home boys and have some good times.

Nope.

The situation in Brazil is simply hopeless. It will take generations to fix. The most I can do is nudge people towards the understanding that investing in education, infrastructure, and healthcare for the population is beneficial for the future economic prosperity of the country. Right now both sides pretty much hate each other, and are both massively corrupt. Difficult place to start any kind of positive changes until you sweep away most of the corrupt politicians.

Brazil is the Mexico of South America. Surrounding countries need Trump-like leader.
