Brazil 2014 Presidential Elections
On Sunday 26th October 2014, Brazilians experienced one of the tightest election contests in their history. The eagerly awaited results came out at around eight o’clock in the evening and confirmed a second mandate for President Dilma Rousseff, who won the presidential elections with a very narrow majority of 3.28%.
The country was politically strongly divided, with the South of the country mainly voting for the political candidate Aécio Neves and the northern part of the country preferring Dilma. President Dilma now has to bring the Brazilian people together by working on issues that matter to the whole population like improving education, fighting corruption and revitalizing the Brazilian economy.

The Amazon expedition was the lawyer Angelo Corso’s challenge to travel by bike from Paraty (RJ) to the Amazon and through the jungle.
According to his plan, he and two other members spent nearly two months trying to reach to the target and return to Manaus (AM).
Paddling in a kayak, Angelo Corso went up to the Rio Negro against the current, a distance of approximately 1.1 kilometers to the municipality of São Miguel da Cachoeira. From there, his team walked to Pico da Neblina, the highest point in Brazil, which is 2993 meters high.
All this was documented and transformed in a video. See more: (Portuguese) http://angelocorso.com.br/
