For the benefit of everyone dropping by the Brazil branch for the first time, please read this FAQ first. And I hope there can be some sort of way to moderate the thread to keep it updated and clean. I know there are some AWESOME regular contributors here who enjoy giving advice; I feel this thread can really help to condense the information available.
I'll go first, with some general thoughts from the South America FAQ. Many thank to Apollo for starting that thread and for a great idea…
For the first time i will travel through Colombia this august. I'll fly from Bogota to Pereira, then from Cali to Santa Marta and finally from Riohacha back to Bogota.

Thank you!
Does anyone have any recommendations for books on Brazil? I’ve read a
few, like Michael Palin’s Brazil (ISBN 978-1780220864) and A Death in
Brazil (978-0747573166), and I recently stumbled across On the Amazon
(978-09556574145) and a nice short story called It’s Not My Canoe,
Amigo (by the same author, but a free download on Smashwords). I
enjoyed these, and also Ed Stafford’s Walking the Amazon (B0055CS5TQ).
Does anyone have any other favourites they would like to share?
