“Flying Saucer?”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

No, it's the Brazilian congress. Interesting. I missed the tour which is given only at certain times during the week, but walking around the plaza was enough to get the aura.

“Brazilians.”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

There are so many Brazils and you'll see some of them there. People is the main attraction. Watching a chamber session for a while, even not speaking Portuguese, may be fun if the "galerias" start to speak up.
