Brazil is a country in South America that occupies half the continent’s landmass. But you probably already knew that. As helpful as facts can be, sometimes numbers aren’t enough to paint a vivid picture. So we at Bored Panda decided to introduce you to this colorful corner of the earth through visuals, more specifically, the ones we found on r/ItHadToBeBrazil.
“Sometimes Brazil hits the front-page [or Reddit] for the most random reasons, but we are way more than off-duty cops, flip-flops, and soccer,” its moderators write in the subreddit’s introduction. “We are funny, resilient, a bit ridiculous, a lot of fun, and kind of weird, we are also tons of beauty and wholesomeness.”
And all of these things are evident in the content that goes through this online community. From keeping your phone cool with a mini straw hat to policemen patrolling the streets on actual buffalos, here’s all you need to see to get a basic understanding of what goes on in this unique land!
