So there are people who sound a bit like that (mainly living in the poorer parts of London) but no quite like that. I really love his accent I think it is so sexy!! But unfortunately it doesn't really exist!!
Thanks a lot, Kat! I thought it might be Cockney, but since I've got no exposition to it at all (except for some slang words in a vocabulary list in one of my books), I couldn't tell. I once read that Christian Bale changes accents very easily for his roles and he can even use a different accent for each character he plays, so now, everytime I watch a film he's starring, I try to pay close attention to that.

Well, I confess I know very little of Brazil myself when it comes to travelling around and visiting places... My knowledge about many parts of it is purely theoretical, from books or from hearing what other people have to say about it. But being this large, Brazil has certainly a lot to offer for different tastes — from the jungle, the rivers and the Boi-Bumbá festival in the North to the food and the wonderful beaches in the Northeast, the historical towns, the 'hectic' life, the Carnival and the metropolises in the Southeast to the cosy, cool cities in the South... You can basically enjoy yourself as much as you want if you know what you like and know where to look for.
Ah, and don't believe everything you may read about violence, crimes and the like — they sure exist and they're certainly a problem, but, as far as I'm concerned, it happens in most (if not all) countries in the world and should never be the reason for someone to give up coming down and getting to know more about the country I love living in.
Any details you might want to know, feel free to PM me, okay?
