Cachaça, Brazil’s unique sugarcane alcohol that is part and parcel of any good trip to Brazil, is popular in bars throughout the world. And if you’ve acquired a taste for cachaça and live in the UK, your search for cachaça will soon get a bit easier. Salto Brazil, a maker of cachaça, is launching in the UK.
To kick things off, they’re holding a competition in which UK residents can send in photos of what they think best exemplifies the “Spirit of Brazil.” The winner will receive 1000 GBP! So if you live in the UK, head over to the website (http://www.saltobrazil.com/competition.php) and give it your best shot.
Kyle Rolnick fell in love with traveling at a young age while touring the U.S. crammed into an old minivan with his large family. That love has taken him all over the world, including a year-long stay in India.
After graduating from college, he worked at a law firm in San Francisco and then moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he arrived speaking not a word of Portuguese, ready to tackle yet another new city.
He still resides there, teaching English to a variety of students, including those preparing to enter the Instituto Rio Branco, Brazil’s only school of diplomacy. In his free time, Kyle likes to read and make music. You can find his work at www.myspace.com/kylerolnick.
