  • Ten Brazilians Outside Brazil on Being Brazilian The 2014 World Cup in Brazil has shined a giant light on the people of the South American nation of almost 200 million. But, since the early 80’s, the people of Brazil have increasingly been living outside the borders of what is still the fifth largest country on earth. Emigration has increased exponentially.
