According to the Imazon research institute, the Brazilian lumber industry is valued at around $1.6 billion per year, and of this a whopping 76% is harvested illegally. The region’s Ka’apor indigenous community has been up against an ongoing battle with illegal loggers for many years.

Sao Paulo skyline

Yes Rio has the beach and the jungle and the weather, and Sao Paulo is a concrete jungle like no other, on the surface an ugly grey metropolis, but dig a bit deeper and there’s a lot more to the place than meets the eye, it’s not all about looks you know…

I’m back in England at the moment, but I think of you often Brazil, Eu voltarei em breve meu amigo.

Rio city guide in this month’s National Geographic Traveller

In this month’s National Geographic Traveller UK is my eighth feature for the magazine, this time it’s about a place I know well – a city guide to my adopted second home of Rio de Janeiro. Sandwiched in between the World Cup and the Olympics next year, and struggling with an economic downturn, the ‘cidade marvelosa’ (marvelous city) still shines brightly and remains a top destination, whether you’re looking for great beaches, music or a joie de vivre that is difficult to find anywhere else.
